Yesterday, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee extended his Stay at Home order until April 30, 2020. Governor Lee said the extension of the order was made in consultation with the White House.
Tennessee Speaker of the House Cameron Sexton praised the governor’s decision to extend the Safer at Home order in a statement:
“Governor Lee’s decision to extend Tennessee’s Safer at Home Executive Order closely aligns with President Trump’s targeted approach for reopening parts of our national economy as soon as possible. The Governor’s mitigation efforts have flattened the curve and have saved lives in Tennessee. We will continue to work with the Governor during this unprecedented time. While we all want a healthy economy, that can only happen if we have healthy Tennesseans. We will continue to work together to achieve a swift and successful economic reopening, while also preserving the public’s health.”
