Mayor’s March 15th Statement

03/15/20

“As my administration works with state and federal officials and community partners to respond to the coronavirus in Nashville and Davidson County, I encourage everyone to take necessary precautions to prevent person-to-person spread. This includes postponing large public and private gatherings, encouraging teleconferencing and remote working, and taking all necessary precautions to protect employees, congregants, students, and all Nashvillians – especially our medically fragile residents.

“In addition to common sense hygiene practices, social distancing is proving to be successful in helping to mitigate the spread of coronavirus in other countries and communities, and it is what our healthcare experts are advising at this pivotal moment. My administration will continue to closely monitor and respond to this ongoing situation throughout Davidson County, but everyone in our community has a part to play in protecting themselves and their neighbors.”
