MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A new Shelby County health order Tuesday highly recommends masks for all indoor public settings, regardless of your vaccination status.

Health Order 24 also strongly recommends vaccinations and encourages employers to require regular COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated employees.

The order goes in effect at noon Tuesday and remains in effect until Aug. 31. It can be viewed here.

Mayor Lee Harris said last week that the county’s newest health order would likely urge masking indoors in public spaces. Masks are now required in Shelby County-owned facilities beginning Tuesday.

Later in the day, Memphis City Council unanimously passed resolution asking Shelby County Health Department to re-issue mask mandate.
