Governor Kemp Coronavirus Update

Governor Brian Kemp provides an update on the coronavirus in Georgia

ATLANTA (CBS46)-- Governor Brian Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp toured the state Friday, reminding Georgians to be diligent in preventing the spread of coronavirus this holiday weekend.

The pair traveled from Atlanta to Valdosta, Savannah and Augusta to encourage best practices ahead of Labor Day. 

Typically a weekend of large events, parties, and travel, public health officials are urging people to stay safe as coronavirus cases surge across the country. 

Kemp has called on Georgians to do four things to slow the spread this fall: wear a mask, practice social distancing, wash your hands regularly, and follow the guidance outlined in the state's executive orders. You can read those details here.
