ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s governor says he’s still deciding what comes next after the state’s shelter-in-place order expires after Thursday.

Gov. Brian Kemp made the remarks Monday after he loosened the order to allow a number of businesses to reopen.

Kemp's public health chief says Georgia moved forward with allowing reopening even though the state didn't meet all the opening benchmarks set by President Donald Trump's administration.
