NASHVILLE (WDEF) – Gov. Bill Lee issued a new executive order on Thursday on Covid-19 restrictions.
This one ends restrictions on attendance at school sporting events.
It goes into affect on Monday.
Gov. Lee says he took the step after an almost 60% decline in new cases in Tennessee plus a 40% drop in hospitalizations.
But he does remind us that the pandemic isn’t over.
“I encourage Tennesseans to keep up their responsible personal choices as we work towards a COVID-free Tennessee.”
