Alabama beaches could be open on May 1

Alabama governor Kay Ivey is considering a plan to reopen the state's beaches in less than two weeks.

CGTN's Sean Callebs reports from Gulf Shores, Alabama.

On May 1, people could walk and go running but cannot bring beach chairs or umbrellas or gather in groups.

On May 15, chairs, umbrellas and groups 10 or less could be allowed.

Baldwin County, where the beaches are located, estimated they had 6.5 million visitors in 2018 who spent $4.8 billion in the area.
