YDG members,

As you may know, there is a global pandemic that has been responsible for the deaths of over 138,000 American deaths with millions of Americans sick from the pandemic. 

In Georgia, COVID-19 is responsible for the deaths of over 3,000 Georgians along with 118,000+ Georgians sick from COVID-19. And all I can say is that — I’m tired and I’m sure you are too. 

Governor Brian Kemp has repeatedly made comments to promote mask wearing and even went on a statewide mask tour to promote the wearing of masks. Brian Kemp has even gone as far to ban and reverse city-wide local measures that mandate masks on a local level. This is evil, it is wrong and it is putting the lives of Georgians at risk. 

The Young Democrats of Georgia care about our members and we urge you to wear a mask. Be sure to remain socially distant and keep outdoor activities to a minimum. This pandemic is getting worse and we need you in this fight.   

The Young Democrats of Georgia will be doing everything we can to end this pandemic. We will be contacting and asking businesses all around Georgia to implement mask mandates and we encourage you to do so as well. Save a life, save your life because you’re worth it. 

Stay Safe,

Jaylan Scott

YDG Executive Vice President
