#KNOXTOGETHER – Our Community Based Plan for Re-opening

As Knoxville and Knox County continue to monitor the impacts of COVID-19, Visit Knoxville wants you to know that the safety of our visitors (and our community) is our highest priority.  For example, on July 3rd, Knox County began mandating mask wearing county-wide in indoor public spaces and enclosed spaces where maintaining 6 feet of social distancing is not feasible.  Our hotels, businesses and attractions are operating under the guidelines of Governor Lee’s Tennessee Pledge. As we re-open our doors it’s vital that we stay committed to being SAFE together…because safe together makes us BETTER together.
