On May 22nd, Governor Brian P. Kemp announced Georgia has tested 59.7% of all nursing home residents, in addition to reporting a new low in COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized.

There are 887 Georgians currently hospitalized with COVID-19. Georgia has seen a 40% drop in this statistic since May 1, 2020.

"One of the key battlefields in our fight against COVID-19 is Georgia's nursing homes, and we are laser-focused on providing the necessary protective equipment and testing to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe,"  said Governor Kemp. "We also continue to see encouraging COVID-19 hospitalization data from Georgia's hospitals. I deeply appreciate their commitment to caring for Georgians fighting this virus, and I look forward to continuing our partnership to provide treatment to these patients."

“As a reminder, Georgia’s health systems are ready to serve patients for elective procedures and routine appointments. We strongly encourage everyone to get important check-ups on their calendar.”
