Governor Kemp Extends Order; Shuts Down Short Term Rentals

March 15, 2020

In an effort to help fight the spread of the Coronavirus, Gov. Brian Kemp has extended the State’s Shelter in Place Order and banned short-term rentals through April 30th.

Included in a heap of new executive orders issued Wednesday (April 8th), the governor banned short-term vacation rentals through April 30 to avoid Georgia becoming a “destination spot” during the outbreak.

The order does not apply to the following: 
  • hotels, including extended-stay hotels, motels, campgrounds, or purely commercial transactions;
  • vacation rentals which had already been paid for before 12 a.m. April 9;
  • leases for property to be used as someone’s primary place of residence;

Kemp noted that all state, county and local law enforcement are authorized to enforce the order, but they are not allowed to evict occupants of a vacation rental.
