Georgia’s Republican governor sued the Democratic mayor of Atlanta on Thursday after she refused to cancel a mask requirement in the state’s largest city. “Science and data will continue to drive the city’s decision,” Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said. At least 15 cities and counties in Georgia have ordered residents to wear masks in public to combat the spread of COVID-19, but Gov. Brian Kemp ordered local leaders to rescind those rules.
