CHAMBLEE, Ga. — Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkson issued an executive order on Saturday afternoon directing all city residents to remain at their homes beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, until further notice.
According to a notice from the city, the action is being taken in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 to the maximum extent possible in the city.
"All individuals are permitted to leave their places of residence only to provide or receive essential services or engage in certain essential activities and work for essential businesses and essential governmental functions," the order said, in part.
The executive order closes all massage establishments, nail salons, spas, beauty salons, barbers, bowling alleys, gyms, fitness centers, and any other establishment providing personal grooming until the order is lifted.
The mayor's order indicates that the city is adopting DeKalb County's official definition of minimum basic operations, and noting that only essential businesses are permitted to operate once the executive order takes effect.
