COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (7-13)

In last week’s The Tennessee Journal (a weekly newsletter on Tennessee government, politics, and business) there was a quote from the Cleveland, TN Mayor on wearing masks. He said, “I am a rule follower. I am a hand-washer. I am a hand-sanitizer. I am a social distancer. Alone, these actions were not enough. We also need to add wearing masks in public areas.”

He made this public statement after recently being diagnosed with COVID-19. His words serve as a very simple reminder that by wearing a mask you’re helping protect the people around you as well as yourself.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (7-7)

As more and more people are going back to work, we received one particular question over and over “I tested positive for COVID-19. When is it ok for me to be around others and go back to work?”.

You’re in luck. The CDC has specific guidance on this situation. You can be with others after:

  • 3 days with no fever and
  • Respiratory symptoms have improved (e.g. cough, shortness of breath) and
  • 10 days since symptoms first appeared

For more guidance on other possible scenarios and answers to questions you might have, you can view the CDC guidance here.

Shelby County Health Directive

As I mentioned to you yesterday, the Shelby County Health Department issued today a new health directive. Beginning tomorrow at midnight, bars will be closed for business until further notice. Restaurants can remain open, but will be required to close daily at 10 p.m. For more information on the new directive, please visit the Shelby County Health Department website.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (7-6)

More than two months ago, Governor Lee ordered that the Shelby County Health Department would have sole authority over Safer at Home restrictions and Back-to- Business regulations.  As was mentioned going into the holiday weekend with new cases and hospitalizations on the rise, there is potential for the Shelby County Health Department to tighten some of the Phase 2 restrictions, particularly dealing with bars. All of the Health Departments decisions are based on expert medical opinions—their own, plus those at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and others in private practice.

As a reminder, all Back-to-Business information is housed with, and questions should be submitted to, the Shelby County Health Department. All pertinent information is located on their Health Directives page, and is the platform to submit questions or submit your business plans for review. To check out their page, go here. If you’re a business and have questions, you can send them to covid@shelbycountytn.gov.   

Mask Compliance

Over the holiday weekend through this morning, we received 115 complaints for mask ordinance violations and Back to Business violations. To submit your complaint, please call 311.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (7-2)

Earlier today, we received more outside validation that wearing a mask or facial covering in public works and is worth the trouble of wearing. Jonathan Mermin, Director, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, and a a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service was in Memphis today commending our efforts so far, but also, expressing his concern at our recent trends as we move into the holiday weekend.

His words are further proof of a simple ask—please wear a mask if you’re out. I know it’s summer time in Memphis, and it may be an inconvenience to you, but it will slow the spread, and in turn, save lives. If you’re not wearing one, you also run the risk of receiving a citation due to the recent passage of our city-wide mask ordinance.

If you need a mask, you can get one here.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (7-1)

Recently, I mentioned how much testing Tennessee and Shelby County are doing relative to other parts of the country. As you can see in the chart below, we’ve performed close to 130,000 tests through June, and we’re going to do even more.

Dr. Jain, an infectious disease specialist and contracted medical advisor for the City of Memphis, as well as other medical professionals around the country like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, are increasingly becoming more supportive of a testing process known as pooling. This method combines multiple patient samples and runs the test of all the samples together. If the result is negative, all samples are cleared. If they come back positive, each pooled sample would then be run individually to determine which may be positive.

The reason this type of testing is attractive is because it can be more efficient, both from a cost standpoint and timing. It also allows for testing of multiple samples at the same time which, as we look at schools and universities potentially opening back up later this year, will be a very useful tool.

Here locally, we are already piloting this style of testing with promising results. As we progress and the need for more and rapid testing occurs, we plan on using the pooling method to help us meet the demand.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (6-30)

As I mentioned to you on Sunday, the number of COVID-19 infected patients in our hospitals is rising. Six weeks ago on May 18th as you can see in the chart below, we had 101 people hospitalized due to COVID-19. On June 27th, that number had risen to 217.

Our number of patients in ICU has also risen. On May 18th, there 45 patients in our ICU’s across Shelby County. By June 27th, that number had risen to 96.

As it stands right now, our hospitals are able to handle the number of sick patients, COVID-19 and others, coming in to see them. We have a total of 2,613 acute care beds under normal circumstances with 2,238 of those beds in use and 480 intensive care units under normal circumstances with 393 in use. If needed, the hospitals, can the hospital can surge to 3,184 acute care beds and 711 intensive care units.

I’m pointing all these data points out to stress that the virus is real, and it is spreading. We’re seeing it in our new case numbers, and even worse, we’re seeing it in our hospitals.

We can control the spread, but that choice is up to you. Please cover you face in public, wash your hands often, and stay home if you’re sick.

Mask Compliance Update: We’ve had several requests regarding compliance with the recently passed mask ordinance. Since yesterday, we’ve had 22 reports of noncompliance. Nine complaints were from customers not wearing masks, three complaints for employees of a business not wearing a mask, and 10 complaints of both employees and customers not wearing masks.
