Governor Brian Kemp signed an Executive Order canceling his shelter-in-place order, effective at midnight tonight (April 30).
“Tonight at 11:59 p.m., the statewide shelter in place order for most Georgians will expire. However, moving forward, I am urging Georgians to continue to stay home whenever possible. I want to thank the people of our great state who heeded public health advice, afforded us time to bolster our healthcare infrastructure, and flattened the curve. We were successful in these efforts, but the fight is far from over.”
Kemp urged businesses that decide to open to “operate with strict social distancing and sanitation rules to keep customers and employees safe through May 13, 2020.”
Gov. Kemp also signed an order requiring the medically fragile and elderly to continue to shelter in place through June 12.
“Together, we will defeat this virus and emerge stronger. Thank you, and God Bless,” he concluded.
