GROVETOWN, Ga. (WJBF) – Mayor Gary Jones and the City Council will conduct a special meeting on Thursday, April 2, 2020 to talk about extending the City’s Emergency Ordinance that passed March 23, 2020.

The meeting will take place at 4:30 P.M. via teleconference that will be livestreamed on the City Facebook page.

The City has already implemented proactive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 such as social distancing, closing City offices, parks and facilities through at least April 5, 2020. All restaurants offering dine in service, salons, and entertainment venues have been closed. The Emergency Ordinance also prohibits gatherings of more than 10 people.

Mayor Jones and the City Council ask that you continue to follow the guidance of President Trump, Governor Kemp and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes avoiding public gatherings of more than 10 people, staying at home if possible – especially if you feel sick – contacting your primary care provider before traveling to a clinic or emergency room, washing your hands frequently, disinfecting often touched surfaces, and avoiding physical contact.
