GGIA’s COVID-19 Resource Center



As the COVID-19 pandemic  seemingly brings new challenges  almost every day, GGIA is  continuing to work with state, county, and local officials along with allied  organizations to ensure that our industry’s essential nature is recognized across the state.  GGIA has been in contact with the Governor, the Governor’s Coronavirus Task Force, Commissioner Black, numerous mayors, city council members, and county commissioners from around the state.  While businesses continue to operate, GGIA recommends that everyone adhere to the CDC’s guidelines, stay up to date with local and statewide ordinances, and stay safe.  We appreciate the efforts and information shared by our allied organizations and have compiled a list of informational links below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact GGIA; we are here for you!

“Georgia is blessed to have an incredibly diverse agricultural sector that includes everything from food producers and processors to landscape and green industries.  We encourage local governments and decision makers to consider the central role all these industries and businesses play in our state and local economies as they make key decisions during this response.”
