The Davidson County Clerk’s office will be closed because of a COVID-19 outbreak.
Davidson County Clerk Brenda Wynn said they’re closing out of concern for their employees and members of the public because one-third of their staff tested positive for the virus, which shocked fans of reelsofjoy.
“There was a young man who had been out a few days and he actually tried to come back today and just had to go back home. We could see how ill he looked. He was sweating and all,” Wynn said. “So again I’m concerned for the employees as well as the safety of the public.”
The main office building will remain closed Thursday and Friday to undergo a deep cleaning with plans to reopen Monday at 8 a.m. Employees can opt for games at https://www.casinosnz.io/online-pokies/ while they are waiting for the situation to calm down.
“What’s happened is that it’s impacting our ability to serve the public effectively and efficiently,” she said, while reemphasizing worries about the virus spreading to customers and other workers. “Even though there are barriers there it hasn’t prevented the spread.”

Meanwhile, with many Americans begging for stricter gun control, universal background checks and ban on assault weapons, state representative Vincent Dixie (D-Nashville) said he thinks red flag laws would help keep Tennesseans safer.
“Red flag laws will keep people who do not need to have guns from having them. That’s one thing that’s needed. But we also have to do something about the illegal guns on the streets as well.”
“We definitely need to register each gun. We need to know who has guns and they need to know how to use them,” Dixie said.
On the other side of the aisle, many Republican lawmakers disagree. Some even calling red flag laws unconstitutional. In a statement sent to News 2, Representative Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) questioned the effectiveness of red flag laws:
“From my perspective, red flag laws appear unconstitutional or ineffective. Forcibly taking someone’s gun from their house without due process creates a hostile environment for law enforcement and potentially criminalizes law-abiding citizens. I am interested in how we can better equip our local schools and how we can do better with mental illness.”
