Governor Kemp’s updates on the
state’s response to COVID-19.
Here are a few relevant highlights:
  • Governor Kemp extended the executive order keeping live performance venues, bars, and nightclubs closed through May 31, 2020. The continued closure of government-operated public swimming pools was not extended in this order.
  • Regarding the safe reopening of state agencies, the Department of Administrative Services is taking the lead.
  • Guidance will be issued to employees, contractors and constituents – and more detailed announcements will be made in the coming days on how the state will be phasing into limited, in-person operations at state agencies.
  • All Georgians must continue to follow social distancing, and gatherings of more than 10 people remain banned unless a space of least six feet can be maintained between each person.
  • The gatherings ban applies to all non-critical infrastructure businesses, local governments, and organizations of all types, including social groups, informal get-togethers, and recreational sports, just to name a few.
  • The list of requirements for non-critical infrastructure has been extended to also include a 22nd provision regarding those establishments that use volunteers. The list has been updated in Category 3 here.
  • Do not put off health care appointments. Please follow a regular screening and vaccination schedule to stay healthy.
  • Georgians and visitors are encouraged to wear face coverings in public, per CDC recommendations.
  •  Additionally, COVID-19 testing is available for all Georgians, regardless of whether you have coronavirus symptoms. Anyone can call their local health department to get scheduled for testing. They can also download the Augusta University ExpressCare app, visit, or call (706) 721-1852.
