FC citizens face coronavirus with optimism

As Franklin County – along with the state, nation and world – continues to practice isolation and social distancing in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, with even greater vigor as Gov. Kay Ivey imposes a stay-at-home order, people are turning to different avenues to deal with the new normal.
