BREAKING: Governor Lee announced he is signing an executive order that will allow groups of up to 50 for gatherings. Previously that number was 10.
This order addresses social gatherings such as festivals, fairs, parades, large parties, picnics, youth sporting events, and overnight summer camps. Guidelines for these under the Tennessee Pledge were not immediately released.
As with past executive orders, the new order applies to 89 of the state's 95 counties. Davidson, Hamilton, Knox, Madison, Shelby, and Sullivan have their own independent county health departments, and may continue to follow individual, county-specific plans created in consultation with State and local health departments.
All ET USFA tournaments are Cancelled until June 6th at Morristown.
*East Tennessee USFA Tournaments are subject to cancel, we are working on Knox County School scheduling if school is in we play, if out due to the Virus we don't play.*

UPDATED: Knox County statement on local sports and the coronavirus
After again meeting with Knox County public health officials and along with much consideration, Knox County Parks and Recreation has decided to postpone all sporting activities through April 6, putting us in sync with Knox County Schools.
This includes, but is not limited to: youth and adult sports; any organized sporting activity on all Knox County property; and all third-party tournaments.
We value the safety of our athletes, their families and our community. Knox County Parks and Recreation will continue monitoring the ever-changing situation and update you as quickly as possible.
Additionally, we encourage those in high risk groups to avoid crowds. For more information, please visit the Knox County Health Department’s website about coronavirus.
City of Knoxville
Amid growing concerns over COVID-19 all organized events, tournaments and leagues at City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation facilities have been cancelled for the next 8 weeks. Youth Commissions should also follow this request.
