State Representative Katie Dempsey, who represents Georgia’s 13th District in the state House of Representatives, believes that the statewide shelter in place order now in effect could be productive in the war against COVID-19, if each Georgian puts forth serious effort to make it work.
Dempsey says that she has fielded many questions from her constituents ever since that order was officially issued last Thursday by Governor Brian Kemp. The order took effect on Friday evening at 6 pm and remains in place through Monday, April 13th at 11:59 pm. Dempsey asserts it should be taken seriously as Georgia attempts to ‘flatten the curve’.
Dempsey commends Rome and Floyd County leaders for taking action prior to the establishment of the statewide shelter in place.
Dempsey also offers a word of encouragement to all Georgians – we can stop the spread of coronavirus together, alone.
Those with questions or concerns about the coronavirus or the shelter in place order may reach out to Dempsey; her contact information may be obtained on the Georgia General Assembly’s website at www.legis.ga.gov.
