Mobile County Health Department officials are talking about this weekend's protest in Mobile and safety from COVID-19.
There were large crowds downtown.
Dr. Rendi Murphree with the health department was asked how concerned she was about the possible spread of the virus at the protest.
She said, "We are sensitive that people are really frustrated and upset, and, while we encourage peaceful protesting, it is still important that when you are gathering that you maintain that six foot physical presence, wear your face coverings."
Health department officials said the number of cases in Mobile Monday afternoon stood at 2,253 with 118 deaths.
