Gwinnett County Government is monitoring developments in the spread of the coronavirus outbreak and how it may affect our residents, employees, and our delivery of important County services.
Masks no longer required on Gwinnett County Transit
As of April 19, Gwinnett County Transit will not require passengers to wear a face mask on its buses at this time. We will continue to deep clean all buses and vans. We will also continue to provide hand sanitizer and face masks on buses based on supplies made available.
Masks no longer required in County facilities
On Friday, February 25, the CDC issued new guidance that no longer recommends wearing masks indoors in communities where the COVID-19 Community Level is considered low or medium, regardless of a person’s vaccination status. Because Gwinnett County’s COVID-19 Community Level falls into the low category, Chairwoman Hendrickson’s local emergency order mandating masks in County facilities was allowed to expire Friday, February 25.
This means individuals will no longer be required to wear masks in County facilities.
Additionally, the expiration of Chairwoman Hendrickson’s local emergency order mandating masks in County facilities does not affect any Court order requiring masks in Court Facilities.
State of Emergency for Continued COVID-19 Economic Recovery in place
On Monday, March 21, Governor Kemp renewed the State of Emergency for Continued COVID-19 Economic Recovery. Read the latest executive order (02.21.22.01).
Listen to Gwinnett Moms
We’ve always looked to our moms for advice when it really matters. And more than year into COVID-19, it really matters! We know there’s a huge amount of information about the new COVID-19 vaccines, much of it confusing and constantly evolving. So that’s why Gwinnett County has turned to an expert source we all trust: moms. #ListenToGwinnettMoms is more than a COVID-19 vaccine awareness and education campaign. It’s a way for moms to share their care with all of us.
When it comes to COVID-19 vaccines, deciding to say “yes” looks different for all of us. Whether you’re still a little unsure or you’re ready to roll up your sleeve today, Gwinnett County Government – with the help of our Gwinnett Moms – is here to help. Read more from Gwinnett Moms.
