Tennessee Set To Distribute 5 Million Cloth Masks To Residents

With plans to begin phasing back in parts of the local economy as early as next week, Governor Lee is focusing on a problem facing many people in the area - the lack of access to protective masks.

With N95 masks being used by medical personnel and most other facial coverings sold out for weeks, the state's Unified Command is attempting to get cloth masks for everyone in Tennessee.

There's no immediate plan of distribution and the state still hasn't actually acquired the masks, but be prepared for that news to come. Hopefully the masks will help keep people just a little safer once businesses start to open back up again!
