Coffee County is working with all of its local partners to be progressive in combating the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and the Tennessee Department of Health. We are sharing information as it becomes available. Please follow trusted sources for news and information.
The Coffee County Health Department testing will reside at a new location effective 7/27/2020. They will be located at 2050 Hillsboro Blvd, in Manchester at the old Southern Family Market. They will be testing from 9:00 am to 11:30 am and 1:00 pm until 3:30 pm, Monday thru Friday. This will alleviate traffic concerns as well as allow normal operations for the 2 current Health departments.
The Coffee County Mayor in conjunction with the City of Manchester and Tullahoma have been working closely with Emergency Management, Public Safety, and Health Care providers to ensure the best path to keep our citizens healthy and safe.
