MAYOR VAN JOHNSON ON FACEBOOK

The mayor of Savannah says he’s ordering people to wear masks inside retail shops, grocery stores and other public places — and those who refuse could face $500 fines.  Mayor Van Johnson said Tuesday he doesn't believe the city has any other choice.

Gov. Brian Kemp won't make face masks mandatory, but he's visiting Albany, Augusta, Columbus, Dalton, Savannah and Valdosta ahead of the holiday weekend to encourage everyone to heed public health advice and wear a mask to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.

Kemp also extended the public health state of emergency to Aug. 11. The emergency order was set to expire at the end of this month.
