In a news conference on March 23, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp issued a shelter-in-place order for medically fragile people until April 6. In the conference, he also announced an order effectively closing bars and nightclubs and barring people from gathering in groups of 10 or more.

As a result of the order, Georgia's Department of Public Health can now shut down businesses or nonprofits, including churches, that don't follow rules.

Grocery stores and other businesses that allow customers to maintain six feet of distance between customers are permitted to remain open.

On Wednesday, Georgia-based Waffle House announced it was temporarily closing 418 of its eateries across the Southeast, officially placing the so-called Waffle House Index in the red.

Yes, that's a real thing. FEMA uses companies like Waffle House to gauge how quickly communities will be able to bounce back after emergencies due to its small chance of closing, Patch reported Wednesday.

FEMA head Craig Fugate is said to have coined the index in 2011.

"The Waffle House test doesn't just tell us how quickly a business might rebound — it also tells us how the larger community is faring," FEMA said. "The sooner restaurants, grocery and corner stores, or banks can reopen, the sooner local economies will start generating revenue again — signaling a stronger recovery for that community. The success of the private sector in preparing for and weathering disasters is essential to a community's ability to recover in the long run."

In a tweet, Waffle House said some of its eateries remain open to customers who wish to place carryout orders. Patrons are encouraged to reach out to their local Waffle House in order to place an order for pickup.
