Now that the Stay-At-Home Order is in place until April 13th in Georgia... You may not want to do anything else other than go to the Grocery Store or just do order online and pickup (encouraging you to keep your distance from folks) unless you're essential for work! If you're doing anything other than those things of staying in place or going to the grocery store, it may land you a misdemeanor in the state of Georgia, according to 13WMAZ!
From 13 WMAZ:
With Georgia'sstay-at-home ordergoing into effect at 6 p.m. on April 3 in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, many are asking what happens if you violate Gov. Brian Kemp's executive order.
It's simple. You are breaking the law and committing a misdemeanor, which is a crime in the state of Georgia.
According to the governor's office, "If you are not sheltering in place and none of thefour exceptions for for essential services, minimum basic operations, critical infrastructure, or necessary travel applies to your activities," you will receive a warning from law enforcement and risk facing criminal charges if you fail to comply.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the Georgia State Patrol will be taking the lead in enforcing the order, Gov. Kemp said.
Yeah... It's best to stay home at this point! Have a safe weekend and wash your hands!
