NEW HEALTH DIRECTIVE No. 18 LIFTS MORE RESTRICTIONS ON BUSINESSES   Shelby County Health Department Directive No. 18

The Shelby County Health Department issued Health Directive No. 18 to go into effect at midnight on February 20th. Health Directive No. 18 further lifts restrictions on businesses, particularly restaurants, that serve the public.

Key changes in Health Directive No. 18:

 

·       Permits food and beverages service until midnight.

 

·       Eliminates capacity restrictions for dine-in services but requires that for all indoor/outdoor dining,seating must be separated 6 feet apart and arranged so that each person seated at one table must be separated 6 feet from other persons seated at another table.

 

·       Customers may be seated and served food and beverages at a bar as long as there is fixed seating for groups of no more than two people and each set of two seats is separated by six feet (and separated from any other tables by six feet as well).

 

·       Cigar/Hookah lounges will have the same restrictions as restaurants. All businesses should prohibit indoor smoking or vaping due to the risk of airborne transmission of the virus. Any indoor smoking that is allowed must comply with Tennessee law on age, time, and place requirements.

 

While the COVID-19 virus remains a threat, these activities are deemed allowable now because our community has experienced reduced transmission of the virus for a period of greater than 14 days.

 

  • Viral reproductive rate in Shelby County is 0.8, the lowest since the start of the pandemic
  • Case numbers have continued to decline since early January
  • Weekly COVID-19 test positivity rates are the lowest they been since October.

Summary of Health Directive No. 16 and Face Mask Directive No. 4


The Shelby County Health Department issued Face Mask Order No. 4 and the “Safer at Home” Health Directive No. 16. These directives consider the rapid spread of COVID-19 through the community, the loss of over 800 lives to the virus, and the current strain on capacity at area hospitals. The “Safer at Home” Directive provides a balanced solution that limits social gatherings, continues to encourage personal responsibility, and clearly defines risky activities. The Health Department will continue to monitor compliance and may make additional recommendations as necessary. 

 

A summary of the “Safer at Home” Health Directive is below:

 

  • During the four weeks from December 26, 2020 to January 22, 2021, residents of Shelby County are asked to remain home as much as possible.  
  • Retail capacity decreased to 50%
  •  Indoor dining capacity at 25%
  • Gyms and fitness facilities capacity decreased to 50%, including staff
  • Social activities related to entertainment and recreation should be curtailed because they expose everyone to unnecessary risks of spreading COVID-19.  This would include, for example, indoor receptions, parties, or events that are not related to places of worship, weddings, and funerals.
  • Health Directive No. 16 strongly encourages employers to allow non-essential employees to work remotely (where feasible).

 

  • All previously approved events that were to occur during the effective dates of this “Safer at Home” should reschedule their event or contact the Health Department to determine whether their event may still proceed.
  • Businesses that provide goods or services exclusively through curbside service and pickup, drive-thru, shipment, delivery, or virtually may continue.


       *Certain listed businesses, including some that provide services to customers onsite, may continue to operate (see number 9 beginning on page 4).

  • Due to the risk of viral transmission, Health Directive No. 16 strongly discourages any on-site dining.

 

  • All safety measures for individuals, services, and businesses that were in the previous Health Directive No. 15 will continue under the new Health Directive No. 16. 

  

The Health Department also released Face Mask Directive No. 4, which:

  • Clarifies that masks are required in gyms and fitness facilities unless a customer has a medical condition that prevents him/her from wearing a mask, and if that is the case, a face shield is required.
  • Clarifies that language for dining experiences to require a mask unless a customer is “seated and dining (eating/drinking).”
