Not all counties in Georgia have been equally impacted by coronavirus. This is what led to Governor Brian Kemp’s delay in issuing a statewide shelter in place order, asserts Eddie Lumsden, Representative for the 12th District in the Georgia House of Representatives. He applauds leaders of Rome and Floyd County for ‘taking the bull by the horns’ and enacting local orders prior to the establishment of the statewide order.
Kemp issued the statewide order upon request of valued sources. This order is maybe a little less stringent than the orders that had previously been issued by local leaders, says Lumsden.
The Governor’s order supersedes all local orders. It took effect last Friday at 6 pm and remains in place through Monday, April 13th at 11:59 pm (unless it is extended).
Lumsden urges constituents to comply with the order and stay at home! And remember to observe social distancing if at any time you must leave home for essential activities.
Those with questions or concerns about the coronavirus or the shelter in place order may reach out to Lumsden; his contact information may be obtained on the Georgia General Assembly’s website at www.legis.ga.gov.
