Sevier County Mask Mandate Extended Through August 29

Published

on

A message from the Department of Tourism:

As Pigeon Forge welcomes visitors, we require that everyone over the age of 12 wear a face covering while in public spaces (excluding outdoor activities). Our county mayor has issued Executive Order 29 which mandates face coverings until Aug. 29, 2020.

Our restaurants are eager to serve you. However, please keep in mind that when dining indoors, larger parties must be separated to meet minimum social distancing requirements. Your host/hostess can provide more details when you request a table.

To help create a safer environment for our visitors, residents, and employees, we invite you to take the Tennessee Pledge (available here), a plan for reopening our state responsibly. The Tennessee Pledge provides guidelines that allow our local businesses to operate while continuing to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. Our businesses want to remain open to serve you. To do this, we must ask that you please travel responsibly and make every effort to protect yourselves, your fellow visitors, and our community while you’re in Pigeon Forge.

In addition to required face coverings, for your personal safety and the safety of those around you, we ask that you please adhere to the following:

  • If you feel unwell or are a member of a vulnerable population, please delay travel
  • Practice physical distancing
  • Thoroughly and frequently wash your hands
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Closely follow other safety practices as implemented at individual businesses

The owner and founder of The Smoky Mountain Life, Kim Hunt, is a lifelong resident of southeast Tennessee and lover of all things Smoky Mountains.
