The mayor also said she was “very concerned with COVID-19 wreaking havoc on the city, specifically black and brown communities with higher death rates.” Savannah, as well as other cities in Georgia have already mandated masks, but the Governor has stated he will not mandate masks statewide.

More than 100,000 Georgians have tested positive for the coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic and the numbers have yet to slow down in the state.
