Health care workers by thousands petition order

|

In less than 24 hours, hundreds of health care workers from across Tennessee, a preponderance from Memphis, have signed an open letter taking Gov. Bill Lee to task for making masking voluntary in K-12 schools. “As trained healthcare providers, we strongly oppose Governor Lee’s Executive Order,” said the letter, written by Dr. Erica Kaye at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. By late morning, it had been signed by more than 575 doctors, nurses, pharmacists and health care workers.
