In response to requests from county officials to help with public education, ACCG has developed an overview of the requirements of Governor Brian Kemp’s Shelter in Place Executive Orders. County officials are encouraged to share this information with their communities, the local media and others to help residents adhere to the Shelter in Place requirements. Two versions of this information are available: Shelter in Place Requirements – without Endnotes and Shelter in Place Requirements – with Endnotes.
During Governor Brian Kemp’s press conference on April 8, 2020, he announced that he would extend the Shelter in Place Executive Order through April 30 and said that all provisions will remain in effect.
