Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp says there is no plan at this time for a statewide mandate for face masks.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Kemp said the issue of mask mandates is being "over politicized." The governor says they shouldn't need a mandate for people to do the right thing.
Kemp said he will continue to monitor the data on Covid-19 infections across the state, however he doesn't think a mandate will be necessary.
However, while there's no mandate, Kemp is asking people to wear masks: The governor said he is traveling around the state today to encourage people to wear a mask when they're in public. He's also urging them to socially distance and wash.
