March 26, 2020

With the Safe at Home orders, you are encouraged to stay at home. It is best to stay at home and only travel for essential activities and only participate in activities that follow social distancing guidelines. There are some ways you can give back to the community and follow these guides during the COVID-19 pandemic and practice social distancing.

Donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including face masks to the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department, 804 N Parkway, Jackson, TN 38305. They are open Monday - Friday from 8 am - 4:30 pm with extended hours on some Tuesdays. Bring equipment in at the vital records entrance.

Give blood. It is safe and has been deemed a necessity by the FEMA. If you are healthy, it is ok for you to leave your home to give blood at LIFELINE Blood Services, 183 Sterling Farms Drive.
