Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms attended the event as well. A Bottoms spokesman said she has been tested and her results were negative.
By Tuesday afternoon, Bottoms issued an executive order to reinstate the citywide indoor mask mandate, requiring masks to be worn in all public buildings, including inside private businesses.
“The CDC has designated Fulton and DeKalb counties as areas of high transmission for the COVID-19 virus. Given this recent surge across the Atlanta area, and based upon the counsel from public health professionals, I am reinstating the citywide mask mandate,” said Bottoms in a statement. “We are watching the data daily and will continue to engage experts for guidance on how best to provide for the safety and wellbeing of our communities.”
