Georgia Department of Labor
The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) is beginning to see an increase in the number of partial claims filed as a result of businesses reducing work hours or temporarily closing their doors as a result of recent developments of COVID-19.  As of an emergency ruling this week by the Commissioner of Labor Mark Butler, employers are mandated to electronically file partial claims on behalf of their employees whenever it is necessary to temporarily lay workers off.  All Georgia employers will share in the cost of unemployment benefits paid to employees temporarily displaced due to COVID-19 easing the stress on business owners during this health crisis. These emergency rulings will help to simplify the process and get workers paid. All career centers are closed to the public, but employees are still working to process claims.

Testing
Testing criteria includes symptomatic critical infrastructure workers and symptomatic individuals who have had direct contact with positive COVID-19 patients, including family members. We will also continue to prioritize testing for symptomatic individuals with chronic health conditions along with first responders, healthcare workers, law enforcement, and long-term care facility residents and staff regardless of symptoms. And although physicians can continue to refer patients to us for testing at public health sites, state officials can directly schedule people who require testing through local districts.

DPH has been getting some legislator inquiries directly on a few items that we wanted to provide answers to below. Please try to pass on your questions to me and Stuart and we will try to forward as necessary so they can deal with the immediate issues at hand.

 

 

  • Labs- Many legislators are being contacted by labs who are attempting to become a vendor for testing. Unfortunately, many of them do not meet the proper qualifications. They must be licensed by DCH, and must have approval from the FDA to do COVID testing through an emergency use authorization (this list is very limited and is available here): https://www.fda.gov/emergency-preparedness-and-response/mcm-legal-regulatory-and-policy-framework/emergency-use-authorization#2019-ncov). If they do meet these qualifications, they can be sent over to use and we will forward accordingly to the appropriate person.
  • Masks/other PPE- All referrals should be made through the new GEMA portal here: https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/4536e218d7f644289b16ef8394e932ee?portalUrl=https://gema-soc.maps.arcgis.com or we will forward to the appropriate person.
  • Reports of violations of the Governor’s EO- If a constituent seeks to report a place of business as violating the Governor’s Executive Order they should go to https://gov.georgia.gov/, click on “Contact Us” and then click on “Constituent Services” which will take them to a form to fill out.
    • They should include the following information in their report:
      • Business Name
      • Address
      • County
      • Telephone Number
      • Specific details for the complaint
  • Reports of violations of city and county EO’s/shelter in place orders/essential business list- should be referred to the county/city in question. Please see the above contact info.

Amended Temporary Closure Notice for Clayton County Government/Administrative Offices

Chairman Jeffrey E. Turner has extended the County’s declaration of a state of emergency to May 13, 2020, to follow the State and Judicial systems' declaration. In addition, the County is following the Governor’s extension of his shelter in place order, which is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2020.

However, the County’s Continuity of Governance (COG) plan will continue through that weekend and will expire at 11:59 p.m. on May 3, 2020. This means that all employees not on approved leave, unless otherwise directed by your supervisor, should report to work at their next regularly scheduled day beginning May 4, 2020.

Employees scheduled to work between now and May 3, 2020, will continue to be paid and accumulate leave pursuant to Civil Service Rule 5.454. Those employees not scheduled to work during this same time period will continue to be paid regular pay during the time absent from work.

Recent confirmed cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) have prompted the need to implement temporary virtual services only at the Harold R. Banke Justice Center, which is located at 9151 Tara Boulevard.

In an amended order dated April 5, 2020, Chief Judge Geronda Carter of the Clayton County Superior Court stated, “multiple cases of COVID-19 have been identified in the Harold R. Banke Justice Center, despite the courts and clerks’ offices therein having made every attempt to limit access to only essential functions”.

As a result, the Clayton County Department of Public Health, along with the Clayton County Office of Emergency Management have recommended a 14-day quarantine for all individuals who work at the justice center, during which time the facility will be thoroughly decontaminated and disinfected. Given the nature of the emergency as declared throughout the state, there is no other physical location for public access to each of the courts and clerks’ offices within the Justice Center, except for those services that can be conducted virtually.

Therefore, all activities, unless such matter can be conducted via video or teleconferencing, are suspended. Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 38-3-62, during the period of this Order, the undersigned hereby suspends, tolls, extends, and otherwise grants relief from all deadlines or other time schedules or filing requirements imposed by otherwise applicable statutes, rules, regulations, or court orders, whether in civil or criminal cases or administrative matters, including, but not limited to:

  1. A statute of limitation;
  2. The time within which to issue a warrant;
  3. The time within which to try a case for which a demand for speedy trial has been filed;
  4. The time within which to hold a commitment hearing;
  5. A deadline or other schedule regarding the detention of a juvenile;
  6. The time within which to return a bill of indictment or an accusation or to bring a matter before the grand jury;
  7. The time within which to file a writ of habeas corpus;
  8. The time within which discovery or any aspect thereof is to be completed;
  9. The time within which to serve a party;
  10. The time within which to appeal or seek the right to appeal any order, ruling, or other determination; and
  11. and such other legal proceedings as may be determined to be necessary.

Weapons Carry License Information Sheet
Regarding Chief Justice Melton’s Statewide Judicial Emergency Order dated March 14, 2020

Probate courts across the state of Georgia will temporarily suspend acceptance of applications for Weapons Carry Licenses and Renewal Weapons Carry Licenses pursuant to an Order of the Supreme Court of Georgia declaring a Judicial Emergency. That Order may be found at 

https://www.gasupreme.us/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/CJ-Melton-amended-Statewide-Jud-Emergency-order.pdf

If you are due to renew during the Emergency period, your license will not expire. Chief Justice Melton’s Order essentially pushes “PAUSE” on all deadlines created by law or rule. Therefore, you will still be able to renew after the Emergency ends. Presently, that date is April 14, 2020. If that date is extended, further order will issue.

To give you a concrete example of how this will work, simply add 30 days to whatever your expiration or renewal deadline is. A license expiring March 18, 2020, will expire April 17, 2020. The renewal deadline will extend to May 17, 2020.

We thank you for your patience in this unusual time. If you have further questions, please call the court and we will be glad to help you.
