The statewide shelter in place order for most Georgians expires tonight at 11:59 PM.
In a statement today, however, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp stated he is urging Georgians to continue to stay home whenever possible.
“In accordance with our executive orders, businesses across the Peach State must continue to operate with strict social distancing and sanitation rules to keep customers and employees safe through May 13, 2020,” Kemp stated.
Kemp signed an order today requiring medically fragile and elderly Georgians to continue to shelter in place through June 12, 2020.
Kemp added, “The health and well-being of Georgians are my top priorities, and my decisions are based on data and advice from health officials. I will do what is necessary to protect the lives – and livelihoods – of our people.”
I will formally extend our public health state of emergency through June 12, 2020 to continue enhanced testing across Georgia, ramp up contact tracing, and maintain effective emergency response operations in every region.”
