City Signs Local Emergency Order

In an effort to promote the health and wellbeing of all Gwinnett County residents and visitors, Gwinnett County and its 16 cities partnered to establish policies to help slow the spread of COVID-19. On March 25, 2020, Lilburn Mayor Tim Dunn signed a Local Emergency Order aimed at protecting the health and welfare of all. "We value our local businesses and appreciate their efforts to help slow the spread of this pandemic," said Mayor Dunn. “The city will continue to support our businesses to the best of our abilities as we navigate through this challenging time.”

The city’s Local Emergency Order calls for the following:

- Gyms, fitness centers and studios, theaters, live performance venues, bowling alleys, arcades, and other similar establishments within the city limits close temporarily.
- Restaurants, food courts, brewpubs, breweries, and other eating establishments must cease offering indoor and outdoor dining service. These establishments may continue to prepare and offer food to customers through delivery, takeout, and/or drive-thru service.
- All employers and business which remain open for use by the public must take the necessary steps to restrict in person contact and maintain a distance of 6 feet between individuals while in the establishment.

Lilburn’s local order also contains mandates found in the Governor’s Executive Order issued on March 23, 2020.

The Executive Order was effective beginning March 25, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. and shall expire on April 6, 2020 at 12:00 p.m.
