Tips to stay safe during the holidays

As we approach the holidays, please consider how your plans can be modified to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Small gatherings are a contributor to the rise of COVID-19 cases. This year, we recommend that you forgo the traditional holiday gatherings and only celebrate in person with immediate family in your household and connect virtually with those outside your home.  The holidays are important; however, staying home is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

If you choose to celebrate in person with people outside your household:

  • Limit contact with people outside your household for 14 days before the gathering.
  • Wear a mask at all times around people who don’t live in your household.
  • Limit close contact by maintaining 6 feet or more from people outside your household.
  • Limit contact with commonly touched surfaces  
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 sec.
  • Get tested before the gathering

The following testing sites are open for your service- consider testing 1-3 days before you plans on gathering. Details at www.covid19.memphistn.gov

Poplar Healthcare: Sat 1-7 p.m. / Sun 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

3495 Hacks Cross Rd.

Lamar location (Lamar and 240, old Lamar vehicle inspection station):  Sat 1-7 p.m. and Sun 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

If you think you have been exposed during the celebration, get tested, stay home as much as possible, and monitor yourself for COVID symptoms.

Shelby County Health Department is tracking clusters in facilities that serve certain vulnerable
populations:

Here is information about clusters considered to be resolved. A cluster is considered resolved once a
facility has gone 28 days without a new case:

Health Directive No. 14 provides further protection for individuals who are facing eviction and to clarify ongoing questions about whether schools may reopen.

  • It provides the following required notice to tenants in eviction matters: “If you or anyone in your household are currently quarantined or are in isolation due to COVID-19 and are unable to secure housing at this time, please notify the Shelby County Health Department by calling 901-222-MASK (which is 901-222-6275) or by faxing the information to 901-222-8249. Temporary housing support may be available.”
