Town of Smyrna and Rutherford County COVID-19 Message April 17, 2020

#RutherfordCountyStrong

“Rutherford County is strong and our citizens are even stronger.” You’ve heard that phrase many times over the last few months of this unprecedented health situation. You’ve heard it because it’s true. 

Our community members have stepped up to slow the spread of the virus, our Mayors within the County formed an experienced and dedicated task force to lead our efforts in this COVID-19 fight, public safety agencies and healthcare facilities in all jurisdictions are sharing resources, communities are finding very creative ways to support our local businesses when they need it most, and that’s just scratching the surface.   

We are experiencing difficult and uncertain times.  High school seniors are losing out on many milestones in their last year of school, gathering with our friends has been postponed, attending church services in person is not allowed, family travel is on hold. All of the things that we enjoy doing seem to have been cancelled, but life is not cancelled and kindness is certainly not cancelled; we are seeing that every day in our communities. 

That’s why we—Rutherford County, Murfreesboro, Smyrna, La Vergne, and Eagleville—have created the hashtag #RutherfordCountyStrong. We want to share with you some of the ways that our agencies exemplify this message, but we also want you to feel free to use this hashtag in your posts. If you’re supporting a local restaurant by getting takeout, tag #RutherfordCountyStrong, if you’re buying a gift card from one of the merchants downtown because you want to help, tag #RutherfordCountyStrong, if you have a message of upliftment and encouragement for your neighbors, tag #RutherfordCountyStrong. 

Let’s use this movement to spread the positive things going on in our community, while we limit the spread of the virus. 

Rutherford County, we will get through this and we will do it together. We will win the battle. We are #RutherfordCountyStrong.

The Town of Smyrna is grateful for its residents’ adherence to Governor Bill Lee’s Executive Orders, as well as best practices communicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  On March 13, the Town announced closure of its Parks and Recreation facilities, Event Center, and Golf Course in order to emphasize the necessity of social distancing and discouraging gatherings of ten (10) or more people within the same immediate areas. Understanding the difficulties some of our utility customers may experience financially, on March 17, the Town announced that our Water, Sewer and Gas providers will not terminate service or apply late fees for the duration of the Governor’s State of Emergency. Effective March 20, Town Hall was closed to the public and operational modifications were made to continue to serve citizens.  These closures, modifications, and protocol remain in effect.

“Citizens within the Town of Smyrna continue to support one another through this challenging time,” noted Mayor Mary Esther Reed.  “We know that many of our citizens are concerned about household finances and purchasing basic necessities.  Shirley Key, Community Services Coordinator with Smyrna Police Department, is a licensed social worker who is available to connect our citizens with resources to help:  Shirley.key@townofsmyrna.org or 615-267-5151.”
