NOTE: The latest testing data from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, including information about inmates at 201 Poplar, Jail East, and Juvenile Detention is NOT included in this update.

The testing positivity rate is the percentage of all tests conducted that are found to be positive. The chart below shows Shelby County’s testing positivity rates over time.

Shelby County Health Department has added a data page to its COVID-19 webpage: www.shelbytnhealth.com/coronavirus.  It includes information about the geographic distribution of COVID-19 cases in Shelby County.


                                                                                                                     
All of Shelby County, including the municipalities and the unincorporated areas are under Safer at Home orders. Some non-essential businesses, including bars and some limited service restaurants have been ordered to close, under the current Health Directive No. 11, which went into effect on Monday, August 24, 2020. Health Directive No. 11 also orders all restaurants in Shelby County to close no later than 10:00 p.m. each night.

The full text of Health Directive No. 11 may be viewed at:  www.shelbytnhealth.com/healthdirectives.

For more information about the Safer at Home order or to register concerns, the public may contact:

· The Shelby County Mayor’s Action Line: 901-222-2300

On August 24, 2020, the Shelby County Health Department issued a revised Health Order and Directive Regarding Masks and Cloth Face Coverings, which may be viewed at www.shelbytnhealth.com/healthdirectives.

The Order and Directive requires the use of masks or cloth facial coverings in most public settings by all persons in Shelby County with the exceptions of children age two or younger and persons who cannot tolerate facial coverings because of certain medical conditions.

Please note, face masks with expiratory vents or valves are not recommended. The vents allow potentially infectious respiratory droplets to be expelled into the air and therefore do not prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Approved masks may be picked up, while supplies last, at all Shelby County Health Department locations listed below during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with the exception of the Collierville clinic, which is open Tuesday and Thursday only. No appointment is needed to pick up a mask.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (9-8)

In partnership with City Council, I announced today that applications for the City of Memphis Small Business Stabilization Grant Initiative are open and ready for submissions.

The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt by everyone, but our small businesses are some of those hit hardest by this pandemic. With these grant funds, we’re hoping to help these businesses to bridge the gap as we all work to get through this.

The City of Memphis Small Business Stabilization Grant utilizing CARES ACT funds will provide economic relief to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury.  Funding can be used to pay for the costs of business interruption, working capital and business recovery challenges, as well as, cover costs associated with reopening safely and in accordance with the Shelby County Health Department guidelines.

Grants will average an estimated $10k to $25k (depending on the number of employees) but can be no more than 25% of annual business revenue except for businesses physically located within the Memphis 3.0 anchor land use area. Business revenue cannot exceed $3 million. The physical business location and the owners’ primary residence must be located with the City of Memphis limits. 

Joann Massey, Director for the City of Memphis Office of Business Diversity & Compliance and her staff, will oversee the administering of the initiative. The application is available online at http://www.memphisbdc.org/grants/. All applications must be submitted completely and with any additional documents that must be processed. Applications will only be accepted via email and cannot be hand delivered. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Grant award is not guaranteed.

For more information contact OBDC at 636-9300. Applications will be accepted until December 23, 2020 or until funds are exhausted. There are no fees to apply and free resources through OBDC are available to assist you with the application process.

All of Shelby County, including the municipalities and the unincorporated areas are under Safer at Home orders. Some non-essential businesses, including bars and some limited service restaurants have been ordered to close, under the current Health Directive No. 11, which went into effect on Monday, August 24, 2020. Health Directive No. 11 also orders all restaurants in Shelby County to close no later than 10:00 p.m. each night.

The full text of Health Directive No. 11 may be viewed at:  www.shelbytnhealth.com/healthdirectives.

For more information about the Safer at Home order or to register concerns, the public may contact:

On August 24, 2020, the Shelby County Health Department issued a revised Health Order and Directive Regarding Masks and Cloth Face Coverings, which may be viewed at www.shelbytnhealth.com/healthdirectives.

The Order and Directive requires the use of masks or cloth facial coverings in most public settings by all persons in Shelby County with the exceptions of children age two or younger and persons who cannot tolerate facial coverings because of certain medical conditions.

Please note, face masks with expiratory vents or valves are not recommended. The vents allow potentially infectious respiratory droplets to be expelled into the air and therefore do not prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Approved masks may be picked up, while supplies last, at all Shelby County Health Department locations listed below during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., with the exception of the Collierville clinic, which is open Tuesday and Thursday only. No appointment is needed to pick up a mask.

COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (9-4)

As we move into this holiday weekend and inch ever closer to flu season, staying disciplined and not letting our guard down has never been more important. I mention flu season because it’s right around the corner, and that coupled with COVID-19 has the potential to be extremely taxing on our hospitals. If we experience another large influx of new cases like we have after previous holiday weekends, we could be in for a very rough fall.

I’m asking everyone to please, please do not let up on our efforts to remain socially distant, to diligently wear your masks, and thoroughly wash your hands. I know these holiday weekends are traditionally times to have family and friends over to celebrate, but now is not the time to squander the progress we have made.

We’re on the right path. Our new case numbers and hospitalizations are continuing to decline and so is the reproductive rate of the virus.

But in order to keep these trends going—we need you.

Stay strong! Stay vigilant, Memphis!
