Y’all can let Brian Kemp trick you into going outside if you want to!
In the last 24 hours, Georgia has verified 1,000 new Coronavirus cases bringing to the total number of cases over 27,000.
As of noon Thursday, the Georgia Department of Public Health was reporting just over 26,000 confirmed cases. That number now stands at 27,023, according to data released at 11:25 a.m. Friday.
At least 1,140 Georgians have died of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. The health department verified an additional 33 deaths since midday Thursday.
Less than 24 hours ago, Governor Brian Kemp tweeted:
I encourage all Georgians to continue to maintain social distancing, limit their travel, and use best practices. Gatherings of more than 10 people will not be allowed unless it is possible to maintain 6 feet of distance.
While the current shelter in place order will expire tonight at 11:59 PM for most Georgians, the elderly and medically fragile will still be required to shelter in place through June 12.

I will remain in the house until King Jesus lets me know it’s safe to come out and play!
