“This action will ensure uniformity among jurisdictions for Georgians sheltering in place and help families and businesses comply with its provisions.

“Fulton County enacted a shelter-in-place order earlier Wednesday, including that anyone who violates the Fulton County Board of Health’s coronavirus stay-at-home order may face up to a year in jail or up to a $1,000 fine upon conviction. According to the order, residents may leave home for essential activities to ensure the health and safety of themselves, their families or their pets. Outdoor activity like walking or running is allowed as long as social distancing is maintained. All public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring outside a single household or living unit are prohibited, except for the limited purposes above. Nothing in the order prohibits the gathering of members of a household or living unit. The order will remain in place until rescinded.” patch.com
