He also announced that he signed Executive order 70.

In his prerecorded video, he talked about the recent surge of COVID-19 cases.

An order that limits private indoor gatherings to 10 people.

“Many think a statewide mandate would improve mask wearing, many think it would have the opposite effect. This has been a heavily politicized issue. Please do not get caught up in that and don’t misunderstand my belief in local government on this issue. Masks work and I want every Tennessean to wear one. Tennesseans have two weapons that they must use in the next 30 days: only gather with your household and wear a mask.”
