After consultation with city and county leaders, health officials, local businesses, and tourism officials, Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters has extended the mask mandate for Sevier County through November 30, pending the governor’s extension via executive order. The mandate intends to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, reduce hospitalizations due to the coronavirus, and to protect the health of the residents, employees, and visitors of Sevier County. The executive order is at www.seviercountytn.org.
“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a major concern in our city and county, as well as in Tennessee and our nation,” said Sevierville Mayor Robbie Fox. “It is important that we all continue to follow the best preventive practices to battle this pandemic, including wearing facial coverings indoors in public settings, staying at least six feet apart, and washing or sanitizing our hands frequently.”
