COVID-19 | Number of people in Georgia hospitals rising

We are still below the levels we saw in April, when the state put tighter restrictions in place, but there's concern that could change.

ATLANTA — Georgia recorded on Monday it's second-highest day of new COVID-19 cases since the pandemic started.
