SHELBY COUNTY, TN – The Shelby County Health Department issues Health Directive No. 20 today to go into effect at midnight on April 17th. Health Directive No. 20 further lifts restrictions on businesses, particularly restaurants and encourages vaccination for all eligible residents.
Key changes in Health Directive No. 20:
While the COVID-19 virus remains a threat, these revisions are deeded allowable now as transmission is low.
“We are pleased to be able to make these modifications to the Health Directive. We will carefully monitor viral activity over the next 30 days to determine if more preventive measures can be lifted,” said Interim Health Director La Sonya Hall. “If community transmission remains low, we will welcome the opportunity to lift even more restrictions and return to more normal activities.”
