The Town of Smyrna supports Governor Bill Lee's Executive Order No. 17, issued this morning, March 22, 2020. Executive Order No. 17 was issued to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by limiting social gatherings, dine-in service, and gym use; exposure at nursing and retirement homes; and providing flexibility for restaurants regarding the sale of alcohol.

"We support Governor Lee's Executive Order," shared Smyrna Mayor Mary Esther Reed. "The safety and well-being of our citizens in Smyrna, Rutherford County, and throughout the state of Tennessee is our priority. We urge our citizens to adhere to this order, as well as to continue following the guidelines issued by the CDC for social distancing, hand-washing, hygiene/cleaning, and avoiding gatherings of 10 or more individuals. We are a resilient, vibrant, and strong community; I am confident that we will emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever."

The Town of Smyrna began to suspend events, modify protocol, and close non-essential facilities on March 14th. Those closures and modifications continue indefinitely for the safety and well-being of personnel and citizens alike.
