Gov. Kemp Extends COVID-19 Order, Public Health State of Emergency

Atlanta, GA – On Sept. 30, 2020, Governor Brian P. Kemp signed an Executive Order extending current COVID-19 restrictions and the public health state of emergency, with minimum changes.

Included in the changes are a reduction in time after a positive diagnosis before restaurant and bar workers can return to work. Effective Oct. 1, these workers may return once they have been symptom free for 24 hours following a know or suspected positive COVID-19 test.

Also, certain SAT/ACT test score deadlines can be extended for HOPE and Zell eligibility.

Executive Order takes effect at 12:00 a.m, and runs through 11.59 p.m. on Oct. 15 and the public health emergency is extended until Nov. 9, 2020. Under Executive Order 09.30.01, nearly all previous guidelines and restrictions pertaining to the state of Georgia’s COVID-19 pandemic response remain unchanged.
