Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson declared the mask mandate will expire at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Your Content can report.

“The Williamson County order requiring face coverings will expire on August 29, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.,” a Williamson County Government press release stated on Saturday.

“However, Williamson Countians are strongly encouraged to voluntarily continue to wear face coverings when in public places where social distancing is not achievable.”

Fox 17 reports that as of Saturday there is a total of 4,328 cases of COVID-19 in Williamson County, which is the sixth highest total among Tennessee counties.

Williamson County also reported 27 total deaths and currently has 1,129 active cases of COVID-19, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

The county is home to ‘patient zero’ — the man who became the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Tennessee.

“For those of you who don’t know, I was patient zero in Tennessee,” Chris Baumgartner told WNCT 9. “That’s right, I’m the 44-year-old dad in Williamson County, who has a son at BGA, works for Biogen, and has 2 families ‘contacts’ living in my household … who really needs HIPAA anyway, right?”
