Day in Corona: La Vergne issues 'safer at home' order

Day in Corona April 2, 2020

La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole has jumped on the "Safer at Home" trend and issued one for the people of La Vergne.

According to a press release from our northernmost city, the mandate was issued in conjunction with Gov. Bill Lee's "Safer at Home (if you want to)" order announced on March 30.

Lee's order, and in conjunction Cole's order, asks all citizens to stay at home and limit travel to only essential trips and for all non-essential business to close their doors.

"We need to be proactive and get ahead of the spread of this virus," Mayor Jason Cole said. "Our top priority is protecting our citizens, employees and first responders. We are considering everything and anything that may be necessary to do that."

The "Safer at Home" initiative strongly encourages citizens to stay at their place of residence except when it is absolutely necessary. The initiative does not mandate sheltering in place. Those whose residences are unsafe or become unsafe, such as domestic violence victims, are urged to leave their home and stay at a safe alternate location. Cole is also urging everyone to follow and comply with CDC guidelines and directives pertaining to the virus and continue to follow social distancing guidelines to help prevent the spread.

Most recently the virus has forced staff in La Vergne to suspend City Court through the month of April as well as cancel its popular Easter Egg Hunt. City building lobbies have been closed indefinitely, all city parks have been closed, and the La Vergne Public Library is closed until further notice. For more information on how the virus is affecting the City of La Vergne visit LaVergneTN.gov.
