Study: Tennessee Hospital Rates up Most Where Masks Optional

October 29, 2020

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Areas of Tennessee where people aren’t required to wear masks in public have experienced increases of hospitalized coronavirus patients in recent weeks.

Researchers from Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine announced the results of a study. It categorized each Tennessee hospital based on what percentage of its typical patient population lives in counties with a mask requirement.

Republican Gov. Bill Lee is allowing counties to decide whether to require masks rather than making masks a statewide mandate. He has argued it’s a matter of people taking personal responsibility.
