Mayor Kincannon Responds to Gov. Lee's Executive Order

Posted: 04/02/2020
Mayor Kincannon's Statement on Governor Bill Lee’s Stay at Home order.

“Governor Bill Lee’s Stay at Home Order is a necessary measure to help protect lives in Tennessee and avoid overloading our medical facilities. Watching the number of COVID-19 cases spread rapidly across the state reinforces that we all need to take every step possible to slow the spread of this virus.  

"Tomorrow Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, Dr. Martha Buchanan and I will be meeting with Governor Lee here in Knoxville and we will discuss the best ways to enforce this mandate.”
