KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Mask mandates in several East Tennessee counties are set to expire at midnight on April 1.

Mask mandates in Roane, Claiborne and Hamblen counties ended after local government officials decided not extend the mandate.

“It is good to report our mask mandate expires at the end of March. That said, we’ll still probably have one in effect at the courthouse since we are regulated by the Tennessee Supreme Court,” Roane County Executive Ron Woody said.

Sevier County officials extended their mask mandate in late February. The county’s mask mandate is now set to expire on April 15.

Other counties like Sumner, Montgomery and Knox Counties all chose to extend their mask mandates in February while Williamson County will no longer require masks.
