Governor Brian Kemp’s recent announcement that Georgia’s public health state of emergency order would extend through June 12 will have an impact on some City of Thomasville services. City Manager Alan Carson said that in light of the Governor’s continued state of emergency order, special event permits and park reservations would continue to be suspended through June 12.
“We are committed to following the Governor’s plan to reopen Georgia and the White House’s Guidelines for Opening Up America Again,” Carson said. “Because special event permits and park reservations are generally for gatherings of large groups, it is best that we align our operations to Governor Kemp’s Exectuive Order, which prohibits gatherings of ten or more.”
Carson said that while many are eager to get back to normal activities, it is important that care is given as to how quickly those activities resume. “We’ve made a great deal of progress in our community to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” he said. “By continuing to use caution as we move forward, we can hopefully keep the number of new coronavirus cases in our community from spiking higher.”
