COVID-19 – Holidays 2020
Thanksgiving is a time when a lot of families and friends travel to see each other, have large dinners, attend parades, watch or play sports, and celebrate together. Many of the activities associated with a traditional Thanksgiving celebration will increase your chances of getting and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19. Staying home and celebrating safely is the best way to stay healthy, but if you choose to celebrate with others and/or travel please take the time to get informed on the risks. Anyone who is sick should not participate in the activities.
Please visit http://webstercohealth.com/covid-19/covid-19-holidays-2020/ for guidance information on how to have a safe and fun holiday.

Dear Citizens and Businesses of Rogersville,

 

In light of our current situation it is imperative that we reach out to our community and let you know we are and have been taking measures to put in place ordinances to protect our community. At this time, our City is still under the Emergency Proclamation dated March 17th, 2020. The ordinance tied to that Proclamation has been amended and now directs a Stay at Home Order effective 12:01 March 27th, 2020. We encourage you to practice social distancing and staying at home as much as you possibly can as directed by Greene and Webster county. The county commissions have put in place a stay at home order that goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on March 26th, 2020. We encourage you to read this document and educate yourself as to what is being asked of the citizens. It is important that you pay attention to Exhibit A and what is considered essential and businesses that you may conduct business with, without violating the Ordinance.

We would like to commend our citizens for how you have conducted yourselves during these times of uncharted territories. Our business community has stepped up and provided services in manners that were proactive and responsible, and we cannot thank you enough. Nearly everything that has been asked of our citizens and businesses have been put into practice before it was mandated, and for that, we are thankful and hopeful. We encourage all essential businesses to continue to allow a designated time for our elderly and most at-risk individuals to shop, limiting the possibility of their contact with this virus. Sadly, some of our businesses have elected to close for the time, and while we grieve with you about the implications that has for your business, your family, and your future, we cannot thank you enough for being the leaders of our community and taking action when you recognized the need for it to be taken. Please remember to shop local with our essential businesses and keep our part of the world alive and thriving, and when we can resume normal activity, support, without fail, for all those who are struggling right now because they have had to put their business, hopes, and dreams on hold so that we may weather this storm and thrive once again.

 

 

 

Thank you for your cooperation,

Mayor Jon Hill

ANNOUNCEMENT #3

 

The City of Rogersville Parks and Recreation Department will continue to postpone all practices and games until further notice.
