Governor signs executive order closing all public schools through March 31

STAFF REPORTS :::

Governor Brian Kemp has ordered closed all Georgia public elementary, secondary and post-secondary public schools from March 18 through March 30.

“To keep our students, teachers and administrators safe and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, I am ordering the closure of all public elementary, secondary and post-secondary schools in Georgia from March 18, 2020 through March 31, 2020,” Kemp said in a statement released Monday evening. “This measure is critical to reducing local transmission in communities across our state, and I ask Georgians to continue to follow best practices – washing their hands regularly, isolating the elderly and chronically ill and avoiding large events if possible – in the days and weeks ahead.”

Kemp said this action, Executive Order 3.16.20.01, is being taken under the guidance of the federal government.
