County Mayor Bill Newman has released a new letter through the Chamber of Commerce, pleading with local businesses to operate in accordance with the guidelines laid out by the TN Pledge. The letter's text is below:
"I'm now asking (please) all businesses to help keep our economy open here in Lincoln County -Fayetteville by stepping up with a masking policy in your business that conforms to the TN Pledge. We are at a level of new cases on a daily basis that has caused me to make this request. This is the only way we can beat the Pandemic and economically survive.
Please pray for our community and our citizens.
