March 26, 2020: Affecting nearly 2 million children and their parents, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order to extend the closure of public schools through April 24 as part of the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Governor's order allows public K-12 schools the ability to reopen on April 27; however, extended closure is possible if the pandemic worsens.
Children and young adults rarely experience significant symptoms of the disease, which is far more dangerous for older people and those with underlying medical conditions. But public health experts worry that the virus can spread fast among students, teachers, and staff in the close confines of a school.
