The City of Smyrna announced this afternoon that they have lifted the requirement that people wear masks when in public within the city limits.

Mayor Derek Norton issued the following statement:

Masks No Longer Required in Smyrna

A month ago on March 25th the Governor allowed anyone in Georgia who wants a vaccine the ability to get one, and for the past three weeks the City of Smyrna has administered vaccinations to citizens locally.  The City will continue to administer vaccinations each Friday at the Smyrna Community Center.

COVID cases are currently 124 per 100,000 population in Cobb County for the past 14 days, which is .124%. 

Smyrna will continue to have the same requirements as outlined by the Governor’s order, but local executive order number 5 is hereby rescinded effective immediately, and masks are no longer required in the city.  Thank you to everyone for your diligence and cooperation throughout this unprecedented time. 

I am proud of our community, and look forward to getting back to normal, beginning with Food Truck Tuesdays May 11th and our first concert on the green June 12th!
