Roswell's state of emergency has been extended through June 12.

Mayor Lori Henry has updated her April 24, executive order to extend the city of Roswell’s state of emergency through June 12. The mayor’s new order is consistent with the Governor Brian Kemp's most recent executive order, which extends the statewide state of emergency to June 12.

The mayor also will open the parking lots of most Roswell parks. However, in order to help support physical-distancing measures, city athletic facilities, outdoor gym equipment, playgrounds, Old Mill Park at Vickery Creek, the Heart of Roswell Park, Barrington Hall and its grounds, and Bulloch Hall and its grounds will remain closed until further notice.

“I know we are all looking forward to reopening our city and getting our lives back to normal,” Henry said. “But we will be taking a very measured approach in reopening Roswell. We will do this keeping in mind the health, safety and welfare of our citizens by following CDC and Georgia Health Department guidelines.”

City of Roswell leadership monitors the Georgia Department of Health and the Fulton County Board of Health data daily. It is also following the White House’s “Guidelines for Opening up America Again.”
