Last month, PE Partners shared with our members the Memorandum of Understanding between the Tennessee Department of Health and local law enforcement about protected health information regarding COVID-19 cases. The legal counsel for the COVID-19 Unified Command & Economic Recovery Group has provided an update to that memorandum, which was shared by the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police to all police chiefs in the state. Please keep in mind the importance of safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of any PHI to which your organization may have had access.
