GEORGIA (WTXL) — On Friday, Governor Brian P. Kemp signed an executive order extending the existing COVID-19 safety measures.

Executive Order renews the current COVID-19 restrictions through November 30, 2020. The Order takes effect on November 16, 2020, at 12:00 a.m.

"As COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations rise across the country, Dr. Toomey and I are asking Georgians to remain vigilant in our fight against COVID-19," said Kemp. "The state has deployed over 300,000 rapid tests to communities across our state, stockpiled a sixty-day supply of PPE, and worked with hospitals and nursing homes to provide the medical staff needed to treat COVID-19 patients. While we are prepared for any scenario, it is vital that Georgians do not grow complacent.
