Covid-19 Information

The city of Pigeon Forge has taken Gov. Bill Lee’s Tennessee Pledge, a plan for reopening our state responsibly. As our businesses reopen and employees return to work, we encourage you to abide by the Tennessee Pledge guidelines which help create a safer environment for our city’s residents, employees and visitors. Please remember that a successful reopening can only proceed if we continue to successfully mitigate the spread of Covid-19. Free Covid-19 testing is available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Sevier County Health Department. Free face masks also are available at the health department during these hours.

Tennessee Pledge guidelines include adhering to:

  • Reinforcing hand hygiene which can decrease the risk of transmission of respiratory viruses by approximately 50 percent;
  • Wearing a cloth face covering while at work and in public;
  • Installing physical barriers, such as transparent screens to provide proper separation between customers and employees;
  • Encouraging social distancing by posting new signage to ensure proper separation in lines and common areas, discouraging congregating in crowded areas, reconfiguring public spaces, or limiting the number of employees and guests in various areas;
  • Thinking creatively to limit staff physical contact with customers where practical while still delivering superior service;
  • Educating both employees and customers about their shared responsibility to help protect each other in a COVID-19 environment.
