Share This Article

Shelby County residents are no longer required to mask up, according to the latest Shelby County health directive that dropped today.

The new directive, which expires Nov. 30, still requires students to mask up in indoor school settings.

Read Health Directive 27 below: 

1) Due to the decline in COVID-19 cases reflecting that Shelby County is currently not a high transmission area, it is highly recommended that businesses continue to require masks in indoor, public settings.

2) Masks are still required for indoor school settings with noted exceptions including one for certain teachers to remove their masks for educational purposes.

3) The current status of booster doses (as of October 27) is explained to include anyone 65 and older regardless of whether they have an underlying medical condition.

4) Health Order No. 27 supersedes Health Order No. 26, and it expires on November 30, 2021. Further orders will depend on levels of vaccination rates (such as whether the County has attained a vaccination rate of 70%), vaccine access and eligibility, hospital capacity, and/or cases per 100,0000 residents.
