It has been our goal in Sumner County, to remain ready and prepared to battle this pandemic and the challenges it has presented.
I would like to begin by thanking all of our great citizens who are stepping up to help others during this unprecedented time. During these trying times it reassures me to see all of the acts of kindness and generosity towards those most affected by this pandemic. I am especially thankful to all of those who are taking the expert advice seriously and are limiting unnecessary contact with others. Please isolate yourself as much as possible and only buy what is needed.
Sumner County will continue running essential government functions. If your business can be done over the phone or online, please use those options.”
