Health Order No. 29 renews much of December’s order with a few changes reflecting new CDC guidance on isolation and quarantine measures. Additionally, it includes the following:

  1. Recommends that alternative work solutions be considered where feasible to permit increased social distancing and to facilitate appropriate quarantine and isolation measures.
  2. Requires masks in schools that have instituted a face covering requirement pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 14-2-104.
  3. Continues to require masks in schools covered by the ADA.
  4. Continues to require rental assistance notices to tenants facing eviction.

Health Order No. 29 is effective January 1 and expires on January 31, 2022 unless superseded or renewed.
