College Park begins business curfew amid COVID-19 coronavirus

The College Park City Council instituted a 30-day curfew on businesses on Thursday.

It is the latest city in metro Atlanta to start a curfew, following the city of South Fulton’s stricter residential and commercial curfew earlier this week, amid the COVID-19 epidemic.

The city website says College Park’s curfew bars businesses — excluding hotels, airport terminals, grocery stores and gas stations/convenience stores — from staying open past 10 p.m. and re-opening before 7 am.

Businesses serving alcohol should have last call no later than 9:30 p.m., according to the city website.
