RE: RECENT COVID-19 SPIKE
The state of Tennessee has reopened for business after the initial shutdown due to COVID-19. An increase in positive COVID-19 tests was inevitable as more people were tested, and tourists returned. City and county leaders do not have the authority to shut down businesses, require face masks, or prevent tourists from visiting. Local elected officials, heads of tourism organizations, and health department leaders continue to work together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We continue to urge everyone to get tested and follow the Tennessee Pledge and CDC guidelines. Everyone must do their part to make our community safer.
