Hair care, nail salons must close under amended order

Posted By on Wed, Mar 25, 2020 at 4:27 PM

While it was first considered one of the "essential businesses" allowed to remain open during Savannah's Shelter-In-Place order from Mayor Van Johnson, that's going to change.

"After receiving regulatory guidance from the state, barbershops, beauty parlors, nail and personal care salons will close on Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m.," a City spokesperson says.

Because that industry is largely regulated and permitted at the state level, it proved difficult to ascertain whether it could be included in a municipal order.

The order only applies to businesses within City of Savannah limits.

"Additional clarifications include pawn shops, title pawn shops, landscaping services and moving services are considered essential businesses and may remain operational. Vape stores are not permitted to stay open. Automobile dealerships can operate their service departments, but they may not operate their sales departments. Real estate maintenance and rental services and work to execute contracts currently in existence are allowed, but all other real estate work should be performed remotely," the City reports.

Shelter-at-home order given for City of Savannah; restaurants takeout only, non-essential travel prohibited

Posted By on Tue, Mar 24, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Savannah Mayor Van Johnson this morning passed a shelter-at-home order, prohibiting all non-essential business and non-essential travel.

Dine-in restaurant services will be prohibited and restaurants will be limited to takeout only.

"If you're not working and you're not shopping for groceries, please stay home," Mayor Johnson said. "All travel except for essential travel is prohibited."

In addition, private gatherings outside of the members of a single household are prohibited.

The order goes into effect midnight tonight and stays in effect until April 8 or later if City Council orders.

Parks and squares will remain open for exercise purposes, but social distancing requirements should be followed. Tennis/basketball facilities must close.

"For better or worse this is our reality for the next couple of weeks. The only way to stem the threat is to remain at home as much as possible," he said.

Essential businesses include healthcare, grocery stores, media, gas stations, shipping services, social services, laundry, home care, residential and daycare facilities for seniors and children, professional services such as legal and accounting, restaurants (but only for delivery and carryout).

Hair and nail care can stay open, but with social distancing rules.

Liquor stores ARE considered essential businesses; many other cities instituting COVID-19 restrictions also put them in the essential category. This keeps those with addictions from going into sudden withdrawal and further challenging the healthcare system.

Private construction projects with a current permit can continue.

About Ga. Gov. Brian Kemp's executive order yesterday, the Mayor said "I don't feel it goes far enough."

But, "we're not shutting the city down," he said, "we're asking you to rediscover your home."

The order only applies to activities within the City of Savannah.

Chatham County declares state of emergency, mandates social distancing measures for restaurants and bars

Posted By on Sun, Mar 22, 2020 at 3:52 PM

After days of criticism for not doing so much earlier, Chatham County Commission Chairman Al Scott has signed a resolution declaring a State of Emergency in Chatham County effective immediately.

However, in some ways the measure still falls short of restrictions currently in effect in the City of Savannah.

Under today's order, "All eating establishments, bars, and nightclubs within the County shall reduce indoor seating capacity and ensure seating is sufficient to achieve 6 foot social distancing. If restaurants, bars, and nightclubs cannot achieve the 6 foot social distancing protocol they are ordered to close," a County spokesperson says.

The resolution calls for the "immediate closure of all indoor recreation, fitness and entertainment facilities. Restaurants capable of providing take-out, delivery or drive-through service are encouraged to increase these services to avoid in-house dining as much as possible."

The City of Savannah last week closed all bars which don't serve food, and prohibited all guided and walking tours. Funerals and weddings within City limits are strongly encouraged to be ten or fewer people.

Chatham Area Transit (CAT) remains operational throughout the County at this time. Citizens are encouraged to use public transit only when necessary to travel to and from work and when shopping for essential items.

The resolution will be in effect until April 22  or "shall be terminated in conjunction with the termination of Governor Kemp’s State of Emergency."

Tybee closes beaches, halts open alcohol consumption

Posted By on Fri, Mar 20, 2020 at 5:25 PM

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Tybee Island has closed its beaches and bans the open consumption of alcohol city wide. These restrictions took effect Friday, March 20, at 10 AM.

"While there have been no identified COVID-19 cases on Tybee Island, this latest move ensures that CDC-recommended precautions such as social distancing and limited gatherings are being followed," a City of Tybee spokesperson said.

While there were discussions of limiting access to the island via Highway 80. "Highway 80 is still open to traffic at this time," said Tybee Mayor Shirley Sessions

"We also have extended a grace period and suspended late fees for business/occupational licenses and utility bills," says Sessions. "You may continue to mail in your tax bills or put tax bills and water bills in the drop box in front of city hall."

Mayor Johnson orders Savannah bars to close, limits restaurants to half-capacity and takeout only

Posted By on Thu, Mar 19, 2020 at 4:16 PM

In a special City Council meeting today conducted by conference call, Mayor Van Johnson proposed to close all bars and nightclubs in Savannah that don't serve food, cease all guided and narrated tours, and limit restaurant service to fifty percent capacity or takeout service only.

Johnson signed the order, but will also seek approval by Council vote at the next Council meeting, expected Friday afternoon.

The measure goes into effect 8 a.m. this Saturday, March 21. A tentative end date is April 5, but that is subject to change.

The emergency declaration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic would also
mandate the closing of all gyms, fitness centers, movie theaters and live performance venues in City limits.

"When we close businesses we're also closing livelihoods. There's simply not any work. We also recognize that at this time people still need to get to food... restaurants still have a very important role," Mayor Johnson said.

Another measure would make all parking in the City free for one hour, "to support takeout operations," the Mayor said.

The proposal happened hours after Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms ordered a similar measure.

"A lot has happened since last Thursday," Johnson explained, referring to the meeting last week in which the St. Patrick's Day Parade and festival were canceled, but all businesses otherwise left open and unregulated.

"I have been on the phone with the governor's office and several phone calls with mayors," Johnson said. "We've also been on daily calls with the Coastal Health District."

The proposal comes the same day that the state of Georgia experienced a dramatic ramping-up of confirmed COVID-19 cases, with ten deaths. As of this writing, Chatham County still has no confirmed case.

The closest cases are in Beaufort County, S.C., and Glynn County and Effingham Counties in Georgia.

"This means there is asymptomatic transmission occurring in coastal communities," Johnson said of the Glynn County cases, which are within our regional health district. (The news about the Effingham case broke after the meeting's conclusion.)

"Not everyone with respiratory symptoms needs to be tested," Johnson said, pointing out that prioritization of testing is needed due to the relative scarcity of tests.

In other news, very limited drive-through testing for those who with PRIOR physician approval will be introduced this Friday at 1:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Jennifer Ross complex.

However, only 90 tests will be available, according to City Manager Pat Monahan. These tests will "not be for the general public" at large, the Mayor said.

Mayor Johnson urged anyone who thinks they need care to CALL FIRST before showing up at the ER or the doctor's office, to keep from infecting uninfected patients and staff at the location.

Alderwoman Bernetta Lanier expressed a concern about the quality of available information for the public.

"People have a lot of time to sit home and interject on social media," she said, suggesting that there should be one place to go to for credible local information.

Mayor Johnson recommended calling 311 for the time being, a City service expected to be ramped up significantly soon.
