The DeKalb County city of 36,000 is at least the second city in metro Atlanta to enact a curfew on its residents. The city of South Fulton approved a curfew Tuesday night barring anyone from leaving their homes between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m., unless for work or medical purposes. College Park issued a business curfew, ordering bars, nightclubs and restaurants to close by 10 p.m. and not re-open before 7 a.m.
Tucker also ordered businesses and residents to comply with federal guidelines in terms of group size and social distancing. The Centers for Disease Control has urged people to avoid large group gatherings.
Several cities in metro Atlanta have placed restrictions on in-person dining at restaurants and bars. Local officials have also called on Gov. Brian Kemp to impose statewide rules that provide broad guidance to businesses.
