KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) — According to a statement released by the Knoxville Police Department businesses or individuals who fail to comply with the city’s ‘safer at home’ order could face punishment.

Violators of the order could be cited $50 each day the violation continues.

“The hope remains that businesses and citizens will be responsible, do the right thing and comply and that citations are not necessary,” said a release from KPD.

The Parks and Recreation Department will be responsible for managing individuals who violate the order at city parks, but KPD says an officer will be called for anyone who causes “friction” after being asked to leave.

Knoxville Fire Department and the Codes Enforcement Department also have the authority to issue citations.
