AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Augusta Commission has voted to allow the Augusta Farmers Market downtown to reopen.

The commission passed the decision, 9-1, after the pandemic closed the market in 2020.

This is the only event commissioners have lifted the COVID-19 restrictions for right now. They will now work on a safety plan to allow other outdoor events, dining, or other festivities on city property.

The first day will be March 20, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eighth Street entrance of the Riverwalk. They will continue to have safety guidelines in place.

Here's a quick look at some of the top coronavirus coverage today from News 12.
