Lebanon, TN (12/30/2020) – Wilson County follows Governor Lee’s authorization for county mayors to require masks, as restated in the State of Tennessee Executive Order No. 73 effective 11:59 p.m. on December 29, 2020. Governor Lee’s Order remains in effect through February 27, 2021. Mayor Randall Hutto’s directive authorizing the mask requirement continues to remain in effect until Governor Lee withdraws the county mayors’ authority to issue mask mandates.
While wearing a mask is a vital part of the defense mechanism to fight COIVD-19, it’s also important to take care of yourself by washing your hands often, maintain good social distance from others who don’t live in your household, stay home when you’re sick, and get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive.
