Kemp Plans to Make Decision Later This Week on Shelter-In-Place

Ahead of an April 30 end to the state’s shelter-in-place order, Gov. Brian Kemp urged Georgians to continue social distancing and to seek testing if they experience common coronavirus symptoms like coughing, fever and shortness of breath.

At a news conference Monday, Kemp did not say whether he will extend the statewide shelter-in-place order beyond Thursday, when it is set to end. The order has already been extended once since it was first issued on April 3.

He noted only that the order is currently scheduled to end after April 30 and that he plans to make a decision later this week on what to do next.
