[VIDEO] Georgia Governor gives a COVID-19 State Update (May 12th)

May 12th, 2020 – 4:00 PM

Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order Tuesday that says live performance venues, bars, and nightclubs must remain closed through May 31.

Also as part of the order all Georgians must continue to follow social distancing, and gatherings of more than ten people remain banned unless there is at least six feet between each person.

The gatherings ban applies to all non-critical infrastructure businesses, local governments, and organizations of all types, including social groups, informal get-togethers, and recreational sports, just to name a few.

The shelter in place provision for medically fragile and Georgians aged 65 and older remains in effect through June 12.

Mandatory restrictions for sanitation and social distancing will remain in place for all non-critical infrastructure businesses, and for recently reopened businesses, they are extending industry-specific restrictions. Those will remain in place through the end of the month.
