“The Health Department encourages wearing a face mask or facial covering when in public, whether working, shopping or running errands. Masks and facial coverings can help prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Alisa Haushalter, Shelby County Health Department Director. “We thank Governor Lee and the Renfro Corporation for providing masks for the people of Shelby County to protect themselves and others from the COVID-19 virus.”
