Earlier today, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee urged all Tennessee schools to close “as soon as practically possible.” At the latest, Lee said all schools should be closed by Friday and remain closed through March 31.
While there are currently no reported cases of COVID-19 in the area, Discovery Park wants to ensure the safety of staff, children and families in the community by following the recommendations set forth by the state government, so Discovery Park will also close through March 31 with a plan to reopen on April 1 but will reevaluate closer to that date.
Museum staff will be in contact with groups who scheduled visits during this time to reschedule or provide a refund.
“While Discovery Park will close its doors to the public for the next few weeks, the work we do to inspire children and adults to see beyond will continue,” said Scott Williams, president and CEO of Discovery Park. “Each day, our education team will be sharing ‘Moments of Discovery’ on Discovery Park’s Facebook page, and we’ll be sharing inspirational content on all our social networks. Our staff continues planning our classes, camps and programs that will take place the remainder of the year.”
Discovery Park offices will remain open. For questions or comments, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 731-885-5455.
