The Tennessee Pledge guidelines for COVID-19 were developed by Tennessee Economic Recovery Group for all businesses, organizations, and certain activities in Tennessee. While the initial goal of the Tennessee Pledge was to help businesses safely reopen after closures due to COVID-19, the revised Tennessee Pledge updates and simplifies guidelines to support sustaining healthy communities and open businesses.
These safeguarding protocols are based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Tennessee Department of Health, with the input private sector working groups. These guidelines do not replace or supersede any applicable state, federal or other statutory or regulatory requirements or standards. These guidelines are subject to change.
The revised Tennessee Pledge document is divided into two parts: (1) General Guidelines for all organizations and (2) additional Industry Guidelines for certain sectors.
