Alabama Power crews and field representatives are practicing safe social distancing in the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the company is asking the public to help maintain a safe social distance of 6 feet from crews and field representatives. The company said this will allow employees to safely continue to serve customers.

“Following social distancing recommendations and best practices allow our employees to continue to provide affordable, reliable energy to the communities we serve,” said Alabama Power spokesman Dennis Washington. “We appreciate everyone’s help as we work together to power our communities through this time.”
