In an effort to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, I have declared a State of Emergency within the city of Atlanta, prohibiting large public gatherings of more than 250 people. This is a quickly evolving public health crisis. The CDC’s recommendation of limiting public gatherings to 50 people came just as I was signing and announcing this Order. We will continue to evaluate and adjust our policies accordingly.
This ban will continue through the end of March and will likely be reevaluated as new information about the spread of the pandemic becomes available.

Please stay safe out there folks. Staying home isn’t as much about YOU as it is about putting vulnerable people, the elderly and infirmed, in jeopardy of life-threatening sickness just because you wanna hear Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” for the fifty-leventh time while you drink tequila and smoke hookah.
Knock it off.
