•, 11 Alive

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp bucked the current trend and overruled all local governments within the state that issued a mandatory mask order. He said the mandates are unenforceable. He is suing Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms over her mandatory mask order and said the lawsuit is on behalf of Atlanta business owners and their employees who are struggling to survive during these difficult times. Last week, Mayor Bottoms said she tested positive for COVID-19, but has no symptoms. -GEG
