As health experts ring alarm bells at the growing virus case numbers, Tennessee is poised to be just one of 14 states heading into the holiday season without a statewide mask mandate. Furthermore, Gov. Bill Lee has vowed he will not impose business restrictions nor issue guidance on how families should gather for next week’s Thanksgiving. The Republican has remained steadfast that he’s open to all options to battling the conronavirus. Meanwhile, prominent doctors at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University of Medical College have called for federal and statewide mask mandates.
