The Atlanta City Council will return to in-person meetings for the first time in more than two years on March 7 as COVID-19 precautions are relaxed.

Since March 2020, the council has been meeting by teleconference due to the pandemic. The pause lasted so long that a new council has been elected since then. The return of in-person meetings will still include mandatory mask-wearing and other precautions, according to a press release.

The first in-person meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 7 at 1 p.m. in the City Council Chamber at City Hall, 55 Trinity Ave. It will include the normal public comment period, according to a press release.

In-person council committee meetings are scheduled to resume on March 14 and in-person presentation of proclamations on April 18.

Council meetings could be viewed virtually by live stream even before the pandemic on the City’s TV channel, website and social media accounts. That will continue after the return of in-person meetings, according to a council spokesperson.
