Georgia Restaurant Association Statement on Local COVID-19 Orders
The Georgia Restaurant Association (GRA) remains supportive of Governor Brian Kemp's Executive Order, Empowering a Healthy Georgia. The inconsistencies of different municipal orders, which may be difficult to enforce, have created much confusion for small businesses that are already struggling to regain dine-in guests and to reemploy the thousands of workers displaced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The safety, health and well-being of Georgia's restaurant owners, workers and guests remains the absolute top priority of our organization. We are pleased that Georgia Restaurants are allowed to reopen and are continuing to follow the recommendations set by the Office of the Governor, the CDC, and the Georgia Department of Public Health,” said Karen Bremer, CEO of the GRA.
