This includes all practices, games, group fitness classes and swim lessons.


The Opelika SportsPlex will remain open, but the SportsPlex basketball gym and pool, Denson Drive Recreation Center and Covington Recreation Center will be closed until re-evaluation on March 27, 2020. The Covington preschool will remain open until further notice.


As of March 13, 2020, Lewis Cooper Jr. Memorial Library will maintain regular hours and is open for materials checkout and computer use.
