In today’s City of Memphis update, recent data shows how widespread the coronavirus cases have been.
From Mayor Jim Strickland
Earlier today, I had the chance to speak with local grocers. There was one common theme that kept coming up–please, if you can, only have one family member grocery shop at a time. This helps with social distancing by having less people in store at the same time and also allows the staff to restock the shelves.
Hopefully, you’re seeing that we are doing everything we can to spread the word and remind everyone about the importance of social distancing. To further push out that message, I recorded a radio spot yesterday. I’m going to apologize now because you’re going to be hearing it a lot over the next several days.
