Today Governor Kemp announced that based on health data in the state there is a flattening of the curve with COVID-19 and he issued new orders regarding businesses and restaurants.  His orders supersede any local orders, and state that businesses like barbershops, salons, gyms, bowling alleys, tattoo parlors, massage establishments and some other indoor facilities that were closed under previous orders may reopen Friday as long as they adhere to safety requirements and social distancing standards.  Dine-in restaurants and theaters may reopen Monday, with safety guidelines forthcoming from the Governor’s office later this week.  Churches may resume in person services but are encouraged to exercise strict safety measures and social distancing.  Bars and nightclubs remain closed.  Citizens are still encouraged to shelter in place as much as possible through April 30.  We will provide more specifics as they are available.
