MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Shelby County Health Department announced a new health order will go into effect January 1, 2022.

Health Order No. 29 also includes the following:

  • Recommends that alternative work solutions be considered where feasible to permit increased social distancing and to facilitate appropriate quarantine and isolation measures.
  • Requires masks in schools that have instituted a face covering requirement pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 14-2-104.
  • Continues to require masks in schools covered by the ADA.
  • Continues to require rental assistance notices to tenants facing eviction.

Health Order No. 29 will expire January 31, 2022 unless it’s suspended or renewed.
