AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Gov. Brian Kemp again has extended a series of restrictions to help fight the spread of coronavirus.

Kemp’s executive order runs for the next two weeks until Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m.

The order makes no changes to mandatory restrictions that were put in place to stymie the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those restrictions include social distancing, maintaining clampdowns on how many people can be inside businesses and restaurants, and a local option for requiring face masks.

The order also keeps the shelter-in-place provisions for those in long-term care facilities and the medically fragile.

However, Kemp’s order also authorizes community and state officials to perform inspections at long-term care facilities to allow for future in-person visitation.
