Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is extending the state’s emergency coronavirus restrictions, but is not requiring citizens to wear a mask.
The order, which was signed Wednesday, also continues to prevent local governments from enacting rules that are stricter than the state's restrictions.
“To flatten the curve, I urge all local elected officials to enforce the terms of this order,” Kemp wrote on Facebook. Without the extension, state guidance would have expired at the end of the day Wednesday.
Under Kemp’s order, face coverings are recommended, but not required.
