Braselton has issued a stay-at-home order effective from 12:01 a.m. on March 28 through 11:59 p.m. on April 13.
Residents may leave their homes for activities that are essential to health and safety for themselves or their families and household members, partners, significant others and pets. Essential activities include getting food, medication and medical supplies, household consumer supplies and healthcare services, or caring for a family member or pet in another household. People are also allowed to do outdoor activities, like walking, hiking, running or cycling, as long as they comply with social distancing requirements.
Non-essential businesses are required to close. Essential businesses include health care, grocery stores, organizations that provide food, shelter and social services to those in need, news agencies, gas stations, auto supply and auto repair shops, shipping and receiving, banks and restaurants that offer delivery, takeout or drive-thru service.
Essential governmental functions and infrastructure, like public works construction, private construction and related activities, utilities, telecommunications and solid waste services, are exempt. First responders, emergency management personnel, 911 dispatchers, court personnel, law enforcement personnel and others who perform essential services, such as health care workers, are exempt.
All public and private gatherings of any number of people outside a household or living unit are prohibited.
Patio dining, which had previously been allowed in Braselton, is now prohibited.
The resolution is available on Braselton’s website.
