COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (6-29)

As I said in yesterday’s update and as Dr. Jain told you last week, wearing a facial covering when you go out in public is crucial to fighting this virus. I also told you we would be enforcing the recently passed mask ordinance. It would be worth your time to familiarize yourself with it.

Over the weekend, we received 49 mask complaints. To report a complaint of noncompliance within the city of Memphis, call 311.
