Following similar precautions that are being taken across the state, these precautionary measures are being taken in order to limit potential exposure to COVID-19. All emergency services will still operate in case of emergency. County employees and most services will continue to be available by phone and many services are available online.
The health and safety of our residents, visitors and employees is of the highest importance at this time. We hope that this temporary restriction in our operations will prevent a more lengthy and significant reduction in operations at a future date. Coffee County will continue to monitor all updates from the CDC and state health officials and will adjust our response plans and operations based on their advice. The CDC and State of Tennessee health officials recommend social distancing, which is a term for taking precautions to reduce your contact with other individuals.
Coffee County will re-evaluate on Friday March 20, by 4 p.m. and apprise the public as to further closings that may be warranted.
