Knox County Board of Health extends bar curfew for two more weeks


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — The Knox County Board of Health met for its Sept. 2 meeting via Zoom in which a public forum was held.

Each speaker in the public forum was allowed three minutes to speak to the board.

The board later passed a motion extending the bar curfew, also known as the COVID-19 suppression in bars regulation, for two more weeks. Two board members voted no in the motion.

Also discussed on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting — the benchmark presentation from the Knox County Health Department, the UT Medical Center data report, a review of the face covering regulation.

The health board meets again next week.
