On Thursday, April 2, 2020, Governor Brian P. Kemp issued a shelter-in-place order for the State of Georgia. The order goes into effect Friday, April 3, 2020 at 6 p.m. and will expire Monday, April 13, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. On Wednesday, April 8, Governor Kemp extended the shelter-in-place order through Thursday, April 30.
The Governor’s Executive Order incorporates the Department of Homeland Security guidance regarding “essential critical infrastructure workers.” It appears that our members can conduct in-person operations while taking measures to mitigate the exposure and spread of COVID-19. Also, the state order appears “to supersede all local ordinances to the extent that they conflict and state that no local ordinance can be more restrictive or less restrictive.”
