DECLARATION OF EMERGENCY
On March 24, 2020, the Town issued a Declaration of Emergency. Effective March 30, 2020, the Town of White Bluff, Tennessee hereby renews its Declaration of Emergency and adds to the previous Declaration as follows:
On March 30, 2020, Governor Lee issued two (2) new Executive Orders (Nos. 21 & 22). I want the citizens of White Bluff to specifically be aware of and adhere to the Governor’s orders, which generally provide for the following:
In Executive Order No. 21, businesses or organizations that perform close-contact personal services and entertainment or recreational gathering venues shall not be open to members of the public.
In Executive Order No. 22, all persons in Tennessee are urged to stay at home, except for when engaging in Essential Activity or Essential Services as defined in the Order.
I encourage everyone to read the entire Executive Orders. Our priority is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of our community.
The power granted to municipal mayors and their governing bodies by the state legislature is limited in circumstances of this nature, but we continue to communicate and work with Williamson County and various state agencies to control and treat the spread of the virus in our community. This declaration will be reviewed and evaluated for modification as necessary.
We will get through this.
Mayor Linda Hayes
