There’s good news and bad news about COVID-19 in Alabama.

While cases have lowered over the past few weeks, about 70% of Alabama residents still are not fully vaccinated against the disease. And the state has seen an uptick in cases in the past four days, likely arising from the Memorial Day holiday.

In the past week, Alabama saw an increase to about 400 to 500 COVID cases a day, compared to about 150 cases a day before Memorial Day, said Dr. Michael Saag, professor with UAB’s Division of Infectious Diseases.
