This was a copy of an update sent to the Roane County Commission.

After a number of conference calls today and debates back and forth of should we Declare a State of Emergency, I did. Not sure what that does for us but wanted to be on the safe side.

Further, we requested the public to follow the guidelines of a "Safer at Home Order" that was issued by the Knox County public health officer for Knox County only. Our Health Officer has not issued an order for us but we are asking folks to follow those guidelines.

I did issue an order to close the public access to the courthouse for appointments only. We will have a sign on the door that would allow walk up individuals to call a respective office to be escorted in. So our offices are open on a restricted or limited basis.

I'm working on policies of Covid -19 Sick Leave and Administrative Covid -19 Leave. A number of other policies regarding operations are also in the works.

If you have any questions please reach out to us.
