Sanitizer pumps are going up everywhere as health and emergency management officials warn the public to wash their hands and avoid skin-to-skin contact as COVID-19 spreads in Georgia.  Currently, there are six confirmed, including three in Fulton County, and one each in Cobb, Floyd and Polk counties, according to the office of Gov. Brian Kemp.

There are 11 presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Georgia that are awaiting confirmation from the CDC, state officials said on Monday.

Meanwhile, an employee at a Waffle House, located at 1849 Marietta Highway in Canton, has tested positive for coronavirus, according to the restaurant. The location is temporarily closed.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) said it is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a new coronavirus (COVID-19) first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019, and regularly coordinating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The outbreak continues to grow in China and cases have been identified in a growing number of other international locations, including the United States.

There is now community (person to person) spread in other countries outside of China. There are ongoing investigations to learn more about the virus, how it is transmitted, and how to prevent the spread of disease.

Concerns about the coronavirus have resulted in the cancellation of several events. On Common Ground News will keep you updated with the latest developments: and On Common Ground News (Official) Facebook.
