GEORGIA (WTXL) — Thursday, Gov. Brian Kemp outlined 39 guidelines for restaurants and dining rooms of private social clubs across Georgia to resume dine-in service on Monday.

The guidelines include that restaurants use exposure mitigation techniques like screening employees before they're allowed to come to work, require all employees to wear face coverings, and ensuring six feet of space between each patron.

If restaurants are able to comply with these guidelines, they will be allowed to open as soon as Monday, April 27.

Movie theaters will also be allowed to open as long as they follow the eight guidelines laid out in the executive order.

The move comes after President Trump repeatedly expressed that he disagreed with Kemp's decision to allow businesses like gyms, salons and other businesses to reopen on Friday as long as they followed the governor's safety standards.
