Recently, the federal government gave Alabama a “D-grade” for the state’s social distancing and pandemic prevention.
But for one wiregrass city, officials say their residents have read and heeded state and federal health warnings.
Tiffany Halley and her family recently moved from northern California to Geneva county.
Last week, she opened “Graceful Rays” a coffee and pastry shop inside Geneva’s “Crossing Church”.
The business follows all health regulations in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Geneva Mayor Frankie Lindsey says initially discussion centered on a curfew. But, the mayor says, “residents and
visitors alike are abiding by the social distancing rules.”
Mayor Lindsey adds that the 45th annual Festival On The Rivers Festival held on the last weekend in April will have to be rescheduled due
to the pandemic. A new date hasn’t been set at this time.
