In a Facebook post today, Governor Brian Kemp said “Georgia will not lock down or impose statewide mask mandates”.
The full post read “Georgia will not lock down or impose statewide mask mandates.
As the first state in the country to reopen over a year ago, we’ve proven that Georgians know how to come together and protect themselves and their loved ones.
The data is clear. Thanks to efforts initiated under the Trump Administration, we have a medical miracle in multiple vaccines that protect from the virus and save lives. Nearly all new COVID hospitalizations in Georgia are among the unvaccinated.
My family, myself, and other state leaders have all rolled up their sleeves and gotten their shot. I encourage all Georgians who have concerns or questions to talk to a medical provider and get vaccinated as quickly as possible.
The biggest obstacle to getting more people vaccinated and the country returning to normal is the mixed messages from Washington D.C. and those with partisan agendas. In Georgia, we have been consistent.
Georgians know the risks and they know these safe, effective vaccines are our greatest tool to defeat COVID-19.”
