Following Tennessee Governor Lee’s decision to not extend the stay at home executive order, the City of Sevierville is beginning to reopen some facilities to the public. Social distancing and personal hygiene are being emphasized; wearing a cloth mask is encouraged when in a public setting. Measures will be in place to enhance the safety of residents and staff at each facility.
“We will reopen facilities as soon as possible, with the safety and health of our residents and staff of the utmost importance,” said City Administrator Russell Treadway. “We ask everyone to continue practicing social distancing and good personal hygiene to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.” Mr. Treadway also noted that some facilities, such as the Community Center, City parks and the Convention Center, would not reopen until later due to their unique social distancing challenges and to comply with Governor Lee’s Executive Order 30.
