The Town of Smyrna is 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.
The measures come in the wake of Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s Executive Order No. 17 regulating such activities in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We support Governor Lee’s Executive Order,” shared Smyrna Mayor Mary Esther Reed.
