This means that the original declaration of a State of Emergency, as well as the emergency orders that followed, have been extended, as allowed by law, for an additional seven days beginning April 22nd at 12:01am and ending April 29th, at which time evaluation to further extend the orders will be determined based on the information from the White House, the State of Tennessee and local healthcare professionals.

The only change is in Emergency Executive Order #3 that applies to the workweek for Montgomery County Government employees. In addition to the extension, this order states that county employees move to a 10-hour workday, four days a week from Monday through Thursday.

Beginning Monday, April 27th, county employees will go back to an 8-hour workday, Monday through Friday. The staggered staff schedule will be maintained, until further notice, to minimize contact and maintain social distancing.

“We are well-aware of Governor Lee’s Stay at Home order ending on April 30th and have been diligently working out a plan for Phase 1 of reopening. Once we have all the information in place and the expectations are clear, it will be shared with the public. In the meantime, it is critical for businesses as well as individuals to do their part to minimize the spread of the coronavirus during this next week so we can move forward,” stated Mayor Durrett.
