Georgia Gov To Expand Reopening: People Know What To Do, We Can’t Fight COVID From Our Living Rooms

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Gov. Brian Kemp said Wednesday that he’ll continue to roll back coronavirus restrictions as long as residents abide by safety guidelines, adding that his decision to allow more businesses to reopen is “reinvigorating” the state’s stalled economy.

During a visit to a Macon hospital, Kemp said Georgia’s data “continue to look really good,” and he downplayed figures that show a recent rise in coronavirus cases. Asked whether he would lift more regulations, he said he was confident Georgians would “follow the guidance” and let him do so.

“It’s one reason I opened up the state when I did. I felt like our people had learned a lot. They get it. They know what they need to do,” he said. “We can’t keep fighting the virus from our living room.”
