Town of Centralhatchee declares State of Emergency

(Centralhatchee, GA) — The Town of Centralhatchee has continually been following the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis and has been in communication with GMA (Georgia Municipal Association), Governor Brian Kemp’s office, and our local public safety officials getting frequent updates.

Although an official standard direction has not been established by the State of Georgia at this time for cities and counties, the Town of Centralhatchee has chosen to implement some safety measures to help limit our overall exposure to this rapidly-evolving situation.

The safety of our residents and our employees is our top priority and we feel that imposing some minor restrictions will result in a major reduction of possible exposure scenarios.

At this time, the Town of Centralhatchee is officially declaring a State of Emergency within the city limits to give us the tools we need to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

Additionally, until April 10, 2020, the following requirements shall be in effect:

1.  All restaurants, coffee shops, and other places where food is offered to the public shall be limited to take out, drive thru, or delivery. All on premises dining is prohibited.

2.  All public assemblages, events and gatherings of ten or more persons are prohibited within the city limits. Essential retail establishments are excluded including grocery stores, discount stores, and convenience stores.

3.  All parks and private social clubs are closed.

This declaration of Emergency shall be immediately effective, and the imposed restrictions shall begin at 8:00 AM on Wednesday March 25, 2020.

As the situation continues to evolve and we receive any additional information from the appropriate authorities we will re-evaluate the timelines and strategies imposed and keep the public informed of all future plans.
