With state restrictions beginning to ease during the Safer-at-Home Phase 2 order, the City of Hendersonville is able to grant additional in-person access to some City facilities and services.
Visitors to any city facility or park are advised to follow the recommended public health guidelines. Remember the 3 Ws:
1) Wear a cloth face covering
2) Wait 6 feet apart and avoid close contact
3) Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
It is important for people who are sick to continue to stay home. High-risk individuals are urged to stay home and travel only for essential purposes.
