Gov. Brian Kemp signed an executive order Friday that will end most of the state’s remaining coronavirus restrictions.
The order, which goes into effect Saturday, lifts the requirement for restaurant workers to wear masks, and reduces restrictions on conventions and live performances.
All specific requirements are also lifted for gyms and fitness centers, movie theaters, body art studios, estheticians, hair stylists and massage therapists.
Social distancing recommendations will be “strongly encouraged,” rather than required, per the order, and the requirement that childcare facilities prohibit all unnecessary visitors will end.
♦ Live performance venues will no longer be subject to a separate set of coronavirus restrictions.
♦ Professional, collegiate, and high school sports organizations and events will have to follow the rules or guidelines set by their respective leagues, conferences, or associations.
