Tennessee Stands Executive Director Gary Humble joined Tim Van Horn today on “Wake Up Memphis.”
Friday the Shelby County Health Department amended Directive number 24, mandating masks on K-12, Pre-K and daycare children, personnel and visitors when indoors. Humble says he hasn’t seen a health department take so much control over its county’s population as Shelby County’s has. He asserts the Municipal School Boards draw their authority directly from the state Board of Education via the General Assembly. Gary is hopeful that a special session of the General Assembly will be called. The session could be used to implement a ban on county health department mask mandates.Gary Humble also discussed Tennessee Governor Bill Lee’s Executive Order 83. He noted parts of the order are “quite concerning.” He cited actions which could lead to less oversight of the healthcare system and fewer protections for citizens.
