Effective at midnight, Atlanta’s bars and gyms will be closed.

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced that she has signed an executive order limiting restaurants to take out service and closing gyms and nightclubs.

The effort is to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

All movie theaters, live music venues and bowling alleys are included.

The order also includes suspending towing and booting of vehicles in the city’s right of way.

Bottoms also said she could be open to alcohol takeout.

“If there is a provision in State law that empowers me to waive alcohol take out, I’ll gladly sign it. I’ve just not seen it yet,” Bottoms said in a tweet.
