County Mayor’s Notes – June 2nd, 2020

Cloth Masks
I received word today that Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has temporarily halted distribution of the free COVID-19 masks following a news report raising safety concerns about an anti-microbial agent used to treat the black, knitted cloth coverings.  That is all the news I have at this point.  If you have any questions please contact Mindy Dole at the Cumberland County Health Department at for more information.

I send my newsletter updates multiple times a week, but I update my social media almost daily.  If you want to get these updates more frequently, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  These numbers are intended to be a brief summary of the information provided by the Tennessee Department of Health.  More detailed information can be found here.

Have you completed your census?  The census is important, and Cumberland County is behind in getting them completed!  Please take the time complete your census today by visiting or calling 844-330-2020 to get counted today!  It matters.

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.
