Temporary Closures Are Ordered Jointly with Gwinnett County and other Cities in Gwinnett
Mayor David Still approved an Executive Order to temporarily close large gathering facilities such as gyms and theaters, as well as indoor and outdoor dining facilities in the City of Lawrenceville until April 6 to further mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This declaration is ordered jointly with other cities of Gwinnett along with Gwinnett County in order to maintain consistency in measures to mitigate the further spread of the COVID-19 virus.
As the declaration states, the COVID-19 virus has now become a worldwide pandemic disrupting community affairs, business services and governmental operations. Recommendations for voluntary measures such as closing or modifying operations to slow the spread of COVID-19 have been unsuccessful in limiting the growing number of cases in our community.
“We are grateful to work hand and hand with the County and the other Cities in Gwinnett to issue the Emergency Order to further protect the safety, health and welfare of our business owners and citizens,” said Mayor David Still. “This is an extension of how many of our local businesses are already operating.”
The City’s Local Emergency Order calls for the following:
Other items in the order include authorization of the Lawrenceville Police Department to enforce these items along with the orders outlined by Governor Kemp on March 23, 2020.
The Local Emergency Order can be read in full HERE and shall take effect at 12:00 pm on March 25, 2020 and shall end April 6 2020, unless terminated or extended by further action of the Council. For additional information, follow the City’s Facebook Page.
