Coronavirus COVID-19

Fairview has issued a Declaration of Emergency and Thompson's Station declared a State of Emergency on Monday night in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, citing Gov. Lee's Executive Order 17 that was issued on Sunday.

The declarations follow similar declarations by Franklin, Brentwood and Nolensville over the weekend, which all move to limit social gatherings, restrict restaurant operations to to-go options, closes gyms and orders citizens to avoid nursing homes in order to protect the elderly, among other mandates. 

Both municipalities “strongly urge" all citizens and businesses to adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines in the name of public health.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus, has shut down operations across the county and was the reasoning behind Gov. Bill Lee’s declaration of a state of emergency on March 12.

This was followed by a national state of emergency that was declared by President Donald Trump on March 13 and a closure of schools across the county.
