Reminder: Meeting and gathering COVID-19 safety practices remain in effect

VUMC workforce members may meet in person. Everyone shall remain masked and no eating during the meeting. VUMC officials are closely tracking the following metrics of COVID-19 spread in the community (which is used by the CDC as measures of transmission rates in a community): 1) Total new cases per 100,000 persons in the past 7 days and 2) Test positivity rate during the past 7 days. Tennessee and our local area are still in the High transmission (red) range. We will continue to monitor these metrics and once we reach a moderate transmission phase, we will reevaluate our safety practices.
