NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Tennessee Governor, Bill Lee, and Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner, Dr. Lisa Piercey, will join WKRN’s Bob Mueller for a statewide town hall meeting on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Lee and Dr. Piercey have been at the forefront of shaping Tennessee’s guidelines and approach to handling the coronavirus threat, as health, safety, and the economy hang in the balance.
