Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp extended the state’s health emergency and Covid-19 restrictions for another 15 days, according to a release from his office.
The orders take effect Dec. 1.
Part of the executive orders signed today include changes that allow nurses and pharmacists to administer the pending Covid-19 vaccine, including in a drive-thru setting, and permits any nurse or pharmacist to observe patients for the requisite 15-minute window after receiving the vaccine.
The latest extension runs through Dec. 15, the release said.
