VIDEO: This is What Social Distancing Looked Like In Atlanta This Weekend

Atlanta residents were out enjoying the 81-degree weather this Saturday after Georgia’s shelter-in-place order officially ended.

But video of some popular places in the area showed that social distancing may not be a priority for everyone.

Video posted on Twitter by news station 11Alive shows masses of people gathering at parks and even at the mall to buy the newly released Air Jordan 5 “Fire Red” Sneakers.

Even with the state out of its shelter-in-place order, both Gov. Kemp and Dr. Kathleen Toomey have urged the public to continue following “safe daily habits” to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and prevent the spread of the virus.

Face coverings and social distancing are among the chief among the requests made by Kemp in a press release put out just one day earlier for Georgians.

“Stay at least six feet from other people, do not gather in groups, stay out of crowded places, and avoid mass gatherings,” the press statement from Kemp’s office said.

As of 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, there had been 28,330 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Georgia since the outbreak began and 1,175 deaths.

Fulton County leads the state in known cases with 2,928 and, with 122 deaths, trails only Dougherty County in southwest Georgia in fatalities tied to the virus.
