Governor Kemp’s Executive Orders Reopening Specific Businesses

On April 20, 2020, Governor Kemp announced new guidance to allow more businesses the option to open on April 24 and 27 if they follow Minimum Basic Operations and specific health and wellness guidelines.

On Friday, April 24, in all jurisdictions, the state allowed gyms, bowling alleys, tattoo parlors, barbers, hair and nail salons, and massage therapists to reopen their doors. This does not require any business to open. Any that do choose to open must follow the “Minimum Basic Operations” required guidelines and these details. Industry-specific requirements are available through the Georgia Department of Economic Development website.

On Monday, April 27, in all jurisdictions, theaters, and restaurant dine-in services were allowed – but not required – to reopen, subject to social distancing and sanitation directions. Additional industry-specific guidance is available through the Georgia Department of Economic Development website.

Entertainment venues like bars, nightclubs, public pools, and amusement parks remain closed as the state continues to evaluate data.

State of Georgia COVID-19 Hotline

The State of Georgia has a COVID-19 hotline. If you believe that you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to the novel coronavirus, please contact your primary care doctor, an urgent care clinic, or your local federally qualified healthcare center. Please do not show up unannounced at an emergency room or health care facility.

Hotline: (844) 442-2681

Coastal Health District COVID-19 Screening Hotline

The Coastal Health District has established a new call center at 1-912-230-9744 to screen individuals for COVID-19 testing. The center will take calls Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m., and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. This is part of a statewide expansion of COVID-19 testing by the Georgia Department of Public Health.

The following people can request testing through the COVID-19 Call Center:

  • Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. 
  • These individuals without symptoms - healthcare workers, emergency responders, critical infrastructure workers, and people living or working in group settings like longterm care facilities.

If you meet the criteria for testing, you will be given an appointment for one of our drive-through specimen collection sites. All screening must be done over the phone – do not visit a health department clinic in person for screening. There is no cost for the test.

If you want to be tested for COVID-19 through the health department, start the process by calling 1-912-230-9744 if you live in one of the 8 counties of the Coastal Health District – Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, and McIntosh Counties. Visit our website at covid19.gachd.org for a list of call centers in other Georgia counties.

Doctor’s offices, urgent care centers, and hospitals will also continue to provide testing for COVID-19 and may continue to refer patients to public health for specimen collection.

COVID-19 Preparedness & Response

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the Coastal Health District are closely monitoring an outbreak of COVID-19, a respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City, China in December 2019, and continues to expand to other countries, including the United States.

The Georgia Department of Public Health has created a resource page to answer your questions about the virus and what you can do to prepare. 

Symptoms of COVID-19 may resemble the common cold or seasonal flu, which is a far greater risk this time of year. 

The best way to prevent infection with any respiratory virus is to use the same preventative strategies used during a normal cold and flu season: 

  • get a flu shot, 
  • wash hands regularly, 
  • cover coughs and sneezes, and 
  • stay home when experiencing symptoms of illness until they resolve. 

Camden County residents should be prepared for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in our community. Residents can take measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Currently a vaccine or drug is not available for COVID-19. Individuals can practice everyday prevention measures like frequent hand washing, staying home when sick, and covering coughs and sneezes.

For more information on COVID-19 and high risk groups, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
