On March 12, APS announced it would close buildings beginning March 16 for at least two weeks.
Then, Gov. Brian Kemp ordered all schools to be closed through the end of March. In a Monday address, Kemp announced additional measures, such as banning gatherings of 10 or more people "unless you can maintain at least six feet between people at all times."
He said: “The Department of Public Health will be empowered to close any business, establishment, non-profit, or organization for noncompliance. These measures were developed using guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Georgia Department of Public Health. This order will go into effect at noon tomorrow and expire at noon on Monday, April 6, 2020.”
The Atlanta school district’s spring break is from April 6-10.
