Monday on Political Rewind, Fulton County Jail reported over a dozen COVID-19 cases in the span of a week, worrying public health officials and highlighting the risks faced by detention facilities across the state.

We were joined by Fulton County Sheriff Ted Jackson to discuss the unfolding situation and what steps his staff are taking to respond.

And after weeks of speculation, Gov. Brian Kemp signed a shelter-in-place order last week. But the governor’s order drew criticism from local leaders along the Georgia coast for lifting municipal restrictions and reopening many beaches to the public.
