ATLANTAGov. Brian Kemp has signed an executive order, extending the public health state of emergency due to COVID-19. The governor’s office said the new order, set to expire on July 1 at midnight, will be the last time the state of emergency will be extended.

“With the executive order I signed today, the public health state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will end on Thursday, July 1 at 12:00 AM,” said Governor Kemp. “I appreciate the General Assembly granting my office this authority in order to swiftly and appropriately respond to the coronavirus pandemic. We worked together – along with the Department of Public Health, dozens of state agencies, local leaders, private sector partners, and countless others – to protect both lives and livelihoods.

“Thanks to those efforts, more Georgians are getting vaccinated, our economic momentum is strong, and people are getting back to normal. We have emerged resilient, and I thank all Georgians for doing their part. Georgia’s best days are ahead as we continue our work to keep the Peach State the No. 1 place to live, work, and raise a family.”

Next week, the Governor will issue a state of emergency executive order that will continue aiding the state to recover from the pandemic.
