St. George group asks out-of-state tenants to self quarantine

Mar 27, 2020

St. George — The St. George Development Corporation is asking visitors from out of state to self quarantine if they come to town.

"As you know, seasonal residents are returning to the area earlier than usual, and visitors are hurrying to secure rentals," a notice from the development corporation states.

"Knox County is fortunate to have only two confirmed cases of the coronavirus thus far. Here in St George, the town’s leadership is working with its non-profit organizations to do all we can to keep the number of cases as low as possible."

The town will post a notice on its website about the importance of self-quarantining when folks arrive. The town acknowledged that visitors are unlikely to check the town's website and are asking owners of rental properties to distribute the notice to people who are renting.

"The only way to stem the spread of this virus is through rigorous quarantining. The many local stores and restaurants, etc., providing curbside pick-up or delivery services make that isolation period much more manageable," the notice states.

The notice includes resources in the community on where people can get food and prescriptions through pick-up or drive through.

I sincerely hopes this works. Of course, I also believe in Santa Claus & the Tooth Fairy. This will be our Trojan Horse
