THA Declares Support for Extension of Mandatory Stay-at-Home Order

Below is a statement from THA President and CEO Wendy Long, M.D., regarding the extension of the mandatory stay at home order issued today by Governor Bill Lee.

“As Tennessee continues to see the benefits of social distancing and staying at home through a slower uptick in COVID-19 cases as opposed to more widespread outbreaks, hospitals are grateful for Governor Lee’s continued leadership to mandate Tennesseans remain at home unless engaging in essential activities. The continuation of this order further ensures a flattened curve in Tennessee and greatly benefits our citizens, hospitals and healthcare workers as the fight against COVID-19 wages on.”
