Knox County officials asking for community feedback for phase 2 of reopening

Throughout all phases, it is recommended that people who are at-risk should still stay at home as much as possible.

KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. — Though phase 1 of Knox County's reopening plan lasts until roughly the end of May, leaders are seeking input from the community for phase 2.
