On Monday night, the Doraville City Council approved a one-month extension of emergency restrictions in the City through April 30, in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The extension applies to Doraville businesses and residents.
At its meeting on March 19, the council voted to enact mandatory restrictions on restaurants, bars and other businesses that come into close contact with customers. Then on March 26, the council amended that ordinance to include a shelter-in-place order for residents, prohibiting non-essential trips from home and limiting gatherings to 10 or fewer people. Both the original ordinance (for businesses) and its amendment (for residents) will now remain in effect through April 30.
Also at its Monday meeting, held via teleconference, the council passed a resolution encouraging Gov. Brian Kemp to enact shelter-in-place regulations throughout Georgia.
