***ATHENS SWING NIGHT CANCELLED THROUGH 4/7***
On Monday, March 16 the Mayor and County Commissioners passed an ordinance with two key provisions, among others:
- A voluntary shelter in place policy requesting that individuals not loiter, wander, stroll, or play in any public place within the territorial limits of Athens-Clarke County (with some exceptions) that began at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17 and concludes at 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7 unless otherwise extended.
- A prohibition on all public assemblages, events, and gatherings within the territorial limits of the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia of ten (10) or more people, not including employees, in restaurants, bars, and/or entertainment establishments or in facilities owned by the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia or on public property. This began at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, and concludes at 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, unless otherwise extended.
Though we all dearly love our dance, we love the people of this community more. Please show your love for the Athens community by respecting this ordinance and keeping the vulnerable in our area as safe as possible.
