The City of Tullahoma announced Tuesday that city operations will move to
Phase 3 COVID-19 Operations. The City COVID-19 Operation Plan is a
three-phased strategy for operations, and when Coffee County case count goes
over 500 cases, the City modifies operations for the safety of employees and
the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning Wednesday, December 16 and continuing until further notice, the
following changes in city operations will be in effect.

Operations at Tullahoma’s D.W. Wilson and C.D. Stamps community centers will remain open but have limited activities. The centers are suspending programming, classes, and direct contact sports,
including basketball. The City’s JR NBA basketball program has been postponed until January 2nd. Please check the Parks web site as other restrictions or limits may apply.
