Governor Bill Lee has issued Executive Order 23, which states:

Safer at home. Because staying at home as much as possible for a temporary period of time will protect the health and safety of Tennesseans by limiting the spread of COVID-19 and preserving health care resources, all persons in Tennessee are required to stay at home, except when engaging in Essential Activity or Essentials Services as defined in this Order.

The governor said he’s signing the order to “get these numbers back down.” The order will remain in effect today through April 14, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.
