County Mayor’s Notes – June 3rd, 2020

Census
Do you want to help attract more retail, restaurants, and other businesses to the area?  You can by completing your census.  Population is important in those decisions, as well as with funding and representation.  Population statistics were just recently used by the State of Tennessee to determine grant awards for local government!  The census is important, and Cumberland County is behind in getting them completed!  Please take the time complete your census today by visiting www.2020Census.gov or calling 844-330-2020 to get counted today!  It matters.

I send my newsletter updates multiple times a week, but I update my social media almost daily.  If you want to get these updates more frequently, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  These numbers are intended to be a brief summary of the information provided by the Tennessee Department of Health.  More detailed information can be found here.

Cloth Masks
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has temporarily halted distribution of the free COVID-19 masks following a news report raising safety concerns about an anti-microbial agent used to treat the black, knitted cloth coverings.  That is all the news I have at this point.  If you have any questions please contact Mindy Dole at the Cumberland County Health Department at mindy.doyle@tn.gov for more information.

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.
