Georgia Governor Brian Kemp says as of today, “Georgia is open for business.”  He has loosened COVID-19 restrictions, now that newly recorded virus cases have been falling in the state.

Restaurant tables can now be closer, there are no more restrictions on the size of gatherings, and no more 6-foot distancing requirements will be in place at businesses.  Kemp’s order also rolls back restrictions on hair salons, tattoo parlors and tanning facilities. There are also no more limits on the number of customers allowed in a store at one time.

Movie theaters are now able to reduce the distance between customers from 6 feet to 3 feet.
