Atlanta, GA – Today Governor Brian P. Kemp announced the members of the Governor's four Coronavirus Task Force Committees: the Economic Impact Committee, Primary Care Provider Committee, Emergency Preparedness Committee, and Committee for the Homeless and Displaced.

"In February, we formed the Coronavirus Task Force with a focus on preparing for COVID-19 and its effects," said Governor Kemp. "Now, as we mitigate the spread of the virus, these committees will address the specific impacts that COVID-19 will have on communities, industry sectors, our healthcare system, and emergency preparedness. I have full confidence in these committees to serve the needs of all Georgians during this challenging time. In the weeks ahead, we will continue to ensure that our state stands ready for any scenario."
