A group comprised of roughly 50 leaders in medical, business, cultural and legal communities will hold their final meeting on May 5 before submitting recommendations to Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on how to reopen the city during the coronavirus pandemic.

“With this group of diverse minds, experiences and voices, the City will be well-equipped to reopen Atlanta in the thoughtful and safe manner needed to overcome the spread of COVID-19,” Bottoms said in a press release.

Bottoms convened the Advisory Council on the Reopening of the City of Atlanta on April 24, and the Council will have held four meetings before submitting their suggestions sometime before May 15.
