The Tennessee Department of Health (TNDH) has confirmed a positive test result for a case of COVID-19 novel coronavirus in Rutherford County. Out of an abundance of caution and to assist with our community’s mitigation efforts, THE DISCOVERY CENTER HAS MADE THE DECISION TO CLOSE TEMPORARILY BEGINNING MONDAY, MARCH 16.
We anticipate remaining closed for two weeks, through Friday, March 27, but will continue to evaluate the situation and post updates as they’re available. During that time, all events and programs are effectively cancelled, which include but are not limited to:
• March 18 – Homeschool Lab
• March 20 – Parents’ Night Out
• All previously scheduled field studies, birthday parties, facility rentals, mobile education, etc.
During the closure, we will undergo a deep cleaning of our facility.
The outdoor areas adjacent to the Discovery Center, including the Murfree Spring wetlands which is managed by the City of Murfreesboro, will remain open.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves in Tennessee, and if any other changes to our operations become necessary, we will keep the public informed at https://explorethedc.org/covid.
To contact a member of our staff regarding this closure, please email email@example.com. Staff will be available for phone calls beginning Monday, March 16, at (615) 890-2300.
