On Good Friday,  Gov. Brian P. Kemp urged Georgians to plan for online or call-in religious services, including any Easter Sunday services.

“I greatly appreciate faith leaders across our state who have made the tough decision to stop the spread of COVID-19 by suspending in-person religious services. Their leadership is literally saving lives,” Kemp said in a press release.“To all Georgians celebrating Easter this Sunday, I am pleading with you to not attend any services in person. If you attend worship services in person, you risk exposure to coronavirus – potentially endangering your life, the lives of your neighbors, and your loved ones. I know this decision is difficult, but we will get through this together.”

For drive-in services, law enforcement has received reports that people are not staying in their vehicles, sometimes letting their children play, go to nearby restrooms or just to congregate.
