NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has extended the state's "State of Emergency" to help the Volunteer State continue to recover from the ongoing and long-term effects of COVID-19.

Gov. Lee extended the status in order to "facilitate economic and other recovery." By doing so, the state maintains it's eligibility for federal aid.

The order was signed on Friday and extends the "State of Emergency" until August 21, 2021.
