Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp extended statewide limits on public gatherings for another two weeks.
The order continues to ban public gatherings of 50 or more people unless they can maintain six feet of social distancing. The new order announced Monday expires at the end of the day on Sept. 15.
Despite the extension, the governor’s office says the state is making progress in fighting coronavirus.
“Currently, COVID-19 hospitalizations in Georgia are at their lowest since July 6,” the governor’s office said in a statement. “Cases reported yesterday were at their lowest point since June 22.”
The governor also extended the state’s general state of emergency through Oct. 10.
