GA Gov. Adds New Shelter in Place Order After Opening Bowling Alleys and Nail Salons

The State of Georgia has received an inordinate amount of criticism as of late, due to Governor Brian Kemp’s decision to reopen much of the Peach State economy amid this global coronavirus pandemic.

At the center of the ridicule was Kemp’s choice of businesses to restart include a number of establishments in which the CDC recommended social distancing protocol are simply impossible to adhere to:  Bowling alleys, nail salons, tattoo parlors, barbershops, and some restaurants.

Now, with another spike on infections announced on Friday, (the day in which these businesses are allowed to reopen), Kemp is issuing a separate, new shelter in place order.

Despite the gradual reopening, Kemp formally extended the public health state of emergency through June 12 and urged people to stay at home as much as possible.

“To protect vulnerable populations, I will sign an order today requiring medically fragile and elderly Georgians to continue to shelter in place through June 12, 2020,” Kemp said. “In addition, I will order long-term care facilities – including nursing homes, personal care homes, assisted living facilities, and similar community living homes – to utilize enhanced infection control protocols, ensure safer living conditions, and protect residents and staff from coronavirus exposure.”

Kemp has come under fire, particularly in largely liberal Atlanta, where a number of the city’s most prominent and popular restaurants have vocally opposed reopening.
