The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of us in every part of our lives and in every part of our country. In Sevierville, many non-essential businesses have closed. Our restaurants are closed except for drive through, take-out and delivery service. Bars are closed as are most entertainment and tourist related businesses. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Dollywood are closed as well. Our grocery stores are struggling to keep up with the demand for some basic items. And we, as a City, are doing what we can to limit the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The mayors of Sevier County and Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Pittman Center, and Sevierville have declared a State of Local Emergency for Sevier County, Tennessee.

From the mayors and city managers of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Pittman Center, Sevier County and Sevierville:
Thank you to everyone who has complied with local governments’ requests to keep our county and cities as safe as possible. The COVID-19 situation is continually evolving, and we receive new information constantly.
