Georgia Governor Bans Cities, Counties From Mandating Masks

Kemp has called such measures “a bridge too far"

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is banning cities and counties from mandating that masks be worn in public to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Kemp's executive order is a revised extension of guidelines put in place during the start of the pandemic, which encouraged, rather than required, residents to wear masks in public. The governor has called implementing such a measure “a bridge too far."

The executive order reads in part: “State, county, or municipal law, order, ordinance, rule, or regulation that requires persons to wear face coverings, masks, face shields or any other personal protective equipment while in places of public accommodation or on public property are suspended to the extent that they are more restrictive than this executive order."
