ATLANTA (WRDW/WAGT) - Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has once again extended his public health state of emergency for Georgia in his latest executive order.

The order lists several COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions such as banning social gatherings larger than 50 people.

Kemp has extended it four times since March.

Meanwhile, he is one of four governors being asked by a U.S. lawmaker to submit an overview of his state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic by Aug. 12.
