(PARIS, TN) Henry County Mayor Brent Greer has extended his executive masking requirement order another seven days through Sunday, September 13th. The existing order is set to expire this Sunday evening at midnight. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee issued Executive Order #59 on August 29th, which continues to provide 89 rural Tennessee counties, including Henry County, the option to issue local masking requirements through September 30th to slow the spread of COVID-19. Local government officials and healthcare professionals continue to support masking, along with frequent hand washing and social distancing, to slow Coronavirus spread in the county. This will continue to give our schools and businesses the best opportunity to remain open. Mayor Greer plans to reissue this order every seven days through September 30 to coincide with Governor Bill Lee’s Executive Order #59. The upcoming Labor Day Holiday weekend will be a critical time to slow down the virus. We continue to need the cooperation of our community.
