FTDD Response to COVID-19

March 25, 2020

Based on the latest data and trends of COVID-19, I have asked the staff of the First Tennessee Development District to continue to work remotely through the week April 3, 2020. Should circumstances warrant, the FTDD Offices plan to reopen on Monday, April 6th

Through April 3rd, the FTDD Offices, located at 3211 N. Roan Street, Johnson City, Tennessee will remain closed to all except essential personnel. All District programs and public health services such CHOICES, CREVAA, Information & Assistance, Options Counseling, and Meals for Seniors will continue to operate and staff have the capability to work remotely. Preparations of the last week have ensured the District is able to meet the needs of every community across Northeast Tennessee.

As local government, businesses, and regional partners continue to adapt to serve their constituents and customers, I am encouraged by our communal resilience and ingenuity in the face of COVID-19. It is further evidence of our ability to overcome any obstacle through regional cooperation. 

Thank You, 

 

Chris Craig

In keeping with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the First Tennessee Development District is reducing on-site operations to limit exposure and slow the potential spread of COVID-19 in our region.

Beginning Monday, March 23, through March 27, 2020, the FTDD Offices, located at 3211 N. Roan Street, Johnson City, Tennessee will remain closed to all except essential personnel. Due to the nature of the District’s work, our intent is to maintain vital operational programs and public health services such CHOICES, CREVAA, Information & Assistance, Options Counseling, and Meals for Seniors. We have also prepared contingencies to enable staff to work remotely, ensuring the District is able to meet the needs of the eight counties and twenty municipalities across Northeast Tennessee.

Our motto, Regional Progress through Regional Cooperation, is more relevant now than ever as our region addresses this issue, we remain committed to working with both public and private partners in addressing COVID-19. In the days and weeks to come, we encourage every resident in Northeast Tennessee to follow CDC guidelines and exercise their best judgement.

Thank You,
