Local Counties/cities declare state of emergencies as school closings are extended

As this second week of “social distancing” began, the state, as well as local counties and cities, began declaring independent states of emergencies fashioned after the official State of Emergency for Georgia declared by Gov. Brian Kemp on March 16 followed by a joint statement with several other agencies urging social distancing for the next 8 weeks.
