What does this Order mean for church services and funeral services?

Posted by Becca Graham on

No business, establishment, for-profit or non-profit corporation, organization, or county or municipal government is allowed to have more than ten (10) people gathering in a single location unless there is at least six (6) feet between each person at all times. This rule applies to church services and funeral services.

Unfortunately, several community outbreaks can be directly attributed to recent, in­person church services and funeral services. Public health officials strongly discourage gatherings of people for these services due to the high risk of transmission of novel coronavirus. For elderly Georgians and the chronically ill, exposure to novel coronavirus can be deadly. Please comply with the Governor’s order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
