Citing the recent increase in patients hospitalized in Jefferson County with COVID-19, Health Officer Dr. Mark Wilson issued an order Friday that will keep entertainment venues closed until June 6.

Those venues include night clubs, theaters, auditoriums, performing arts centers, museums and indoor children’s play areas. Most of Birmingham is in Jefferson County.

The move comes one day after Gov. Kay Ivey announced that restrictions would be lifted on many entertainment venues, but her order allowed local health officials to impose stricter requirements.
