DPG Responds To Brian Kemp’s Reckless and Dangerous Coronavirus Response

April 21, 2020

ATLANTA – Today, just minutes before over 1,000 new COVID-19 cases and 42 more deaths were reported in Georgia, Governor* Brian Kemp announced plans to re-open some businesses like movie theaters and bowling alleys, as healthcare care providers continue to beg for basic protective gear.  Kemp’s recommendation goes against the expert advice of medical professionals who warn that Georgia’s coronavirus crisis is “far from over.” 

DPG Chairwoman Nikema Williams released the following statement: 

“Without enough testing, without enough supplies for doctors and nurses, and without listening to medical professionals, the governor’s actions today will make this crisis even worse and put more Georgians at risk. Now is the time to listen to the health providers and public health experts who tell us what we need to keep our communities safe. I urge all Georgians to listen to the advice of their health care providers and stay home — even if their governor won’t.”
