The Metro Nashville Public Health Department is now offering free cloth masks at three health center locations beginning today (May 6). Masks will be available between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Lentz Public Health Center on 2500 Charlotte Avenue, at Woodbine Health Center at 224 Oriel Ave., and at the East Nashville Center at 1015 East Trinity Lane.
The masks are being provided by Governor Bill Lee’s Unified Command Group and are being made available to follow the introduction of Metro Public Health Order 4, which asks all people who can safely wear a mask to do so in public settings, to help combat the spread of COVID-19. The order also requires businesses and facilities open to the public to post signage requesting those entering the facility to wear a mask.
Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest the use of cloth masks can limit the spread of the virus, particularly by those who are infected but do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Cloth masks should not be worn by children under the age of two or by those who would jeopardize their health or safety by wearing one.
According to the Tennessee Department of Health, there have been 3,033 total cases of COVID-19 in Davidson County to date, and 30 deaths. To date, 1,513 people in Davidson County have recovered from from COVID-19.
