Thursday will mark a roll back in Georgia's COVID-19 economic restrictions in accordance with governor Kemp's March 31 executive order.

Governor Kemp issued a video message going over the stipulations of the order and what the ending of these restrictions means for the state.

  • Effective April 8 through April 30.
  • Gathering bans eliminated.
  • Shelter-in-place requirements eliminated.
  • Removal of critical infrastructure distinction and reduction of organization suggested measures into one list with a small number of industry-specific requirements remaining.
  • Reduction in social distancing requirements.
  • Law enforcement can no longer close and organization for failure to comply with executive order provisions.
