TVA Closes Select Recreation Areas
By West Kentucky Star Staff
KNOXVILLE - The Tennessee Valley Authority is closing public restroom facilities, beaches and group pavilions at all of TVA's recreation areas until further notice, as part of its continuing efforts to protect public health during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

The closures will begin during the day on Friday, March 20. Visitors are asked not to bypass gates or close fences to access closed areas.

These decisions are intended to support Centers for Disease Control recommendations to limit the size of public gatherings to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

All TVA boat ramps remain open, as well as more than 200,000 acres of undeveloped public lands and trails.
