The City is currently under the state’s Shelter in Place Order which is expected to expire Monday, April 13, 2020. City Council will vote whether or not to extend the City’s government facility closures through May 5, 2020, if Governor Brian Kemp does not extend the state Shelter in Place Order.

Mayor Jones and City Council ask that you continue to follow the guidance of President Trump, Governor Kemp and the CDC. Please avoid public gatherings of more than 10 people, stay at home if possible – especially if you feel sick – contact your primary care provider before traveling to a clinic or emergency room, wash your hands frequently, disinfect often touched surfaces, and avoid physical contact.
