KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The Knox County Board of Health met on Wednesday to discuss their response to the spread of COVID-19 after officials reported a total of 10,255 cases in Knox County.
They discussed the county’s bar curfew, which requires all establishments offering on-premise consumption of alcoholic beverages or beer to close by 11 p.m.

Members voted to continue the curfew, 7 – 1. Dianna Drake voted against the continuation.
