TENNESSEE GOVERNOR TO EVALUATE SCHOOL CLOSURE ORDER THIS WEEK

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee says he’ll evaluate this week (March 23-27, 2020) whether a statewide directive to keep public schools closed should be extended.

Currently (March 24, 2020), there are several school systems that are closed until March 31, 2020 including Bradley, Blount, Cumberland, McMinn, Monroe, Oak Ridge, Overton, Pickett, Putnam and Roane County.

Fentress and Morgan County – out until April 1, 2020.

Anderson, Clay, Knox, Loudon and White – out until April 3, 2020

Bledsoe and Rhea County – out until April 6, 2020

Given the fact that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to rise every day in Tennessee, an extension of the closures from the governor is likely.
