Gov Kemp Covid-19 Update: Executive Order Closes GA K-12 Schools For the Remainder of School Year; Shelter In Place Order Coming

Governor Brian Kemp held an update this afternoon featuring his Covid-19 task force leaders, utilizing the open spaces of Freedom Park across the street Capitol in order to maximize social distancing from those assembled for the event.

Two major news items:

Georgia’s brick and mortar public schools will remain closed through the end of the year. Online learning will continue.

A shelter in place will go into effect Friday of this week, and will last until April 13th. Details are forthcoming, to give Georgians not yet prepared time to do so. There will be exemptions for grocery, pharmacy, and other items which we’ve come to know as “essential”.
