TN Gov. Lee Extends Illegal Face Mask Order Through the End of the Year


Gov. Bill Lee intends to extend an executive order that allows the majority of Tennessee’s counties the option to require face coverings in public as the state has seen coronavirus case counts grow.

Gillum Ferguson, Lee’s spokesman, confirmed Monday the executive order will be extended until the end of the year.

The order, which applies to 89 out of the state’s 95 counties, was scheduled to expire at the end of the month. Meanwhile, the state’s six larger metro counties with locally governed health departments already had authority to implement their own COVID-19 restrictions, including mask mandates.
