Tennessee Governor Bill Lee last night signed Executive Order 67 extending the state of emergency for COVID-19 until December 29, 2020. The order gives health and local leaders the ability to better respond to the coronavirus pandemic. Part of those regulations includes giving county leaders the power to issue mask requirements.

The order also allows pre-license, graduate and doctoral-level mental health professionals to provide telehealth services, as long as they are supervised. Several state leaders have emphasized the importance of expanding health services, including mental health services, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
