Georgia's Governor Kemp issued a new Order for the state yesterday that will permit office workers to return to in-person work and will greatly relax the cleaning and distancing measures required of Bars and Restaurants, among other industries.  The rule changes do not make any of the relaxed standards mandatory -- that is, businesses may continue to permit remote work and to maintain heightened cleaning and distancing standards.  

The new rules take effect on Tuesday.  They are a clear signal that Georgia intends to return to normal business operations as quickly as feasible.
