April 16, 2020


Update June 2, 2020: According to The Daily Memphian: 

During the Shelby County Health Department’s coronavirus briefing Tuesday, June 2, Health Officer Dr. Bruce Randolph said the 190 new cases reported Tuesday was the largest increase since April 24.

Health Department outlines steps toward Phase 3

Randolph said the county is not ready for Phase 3. “As things are now, based on the trends that we see now ... I do not think we can move into Phase 3 right now.”

Tuesday, Mayor Jim Strickland delayed the Phase 3 reopening of the Memphis economy to June 16, adding nearly a week to Phase 2.

The positivity rate is 6.8% with more than 78,000 tests done in Shelby County. Randolph also encouraged wearing masks and face coverings.

(Update May 18, 2020:  According to Action News 5 (WMC), During Phase 2: restaurants and retail still operate at 50% capacity. Civil buildings, churches and gyms move up to 50% capacity.

Sports facilities, like basketball courts open back up, with limits on how many people may use them.

Today (May 18th) Southland Casino Racing opened its doors under strict social distancing guidelines.
