This webpage is a resource for Knox County citizens and employees. Inclement weather closings will be listed here for your information and convenience. However, this list may not be comprehensive, so any member of the public needing to conduct business with Knox County should call 865-215-2000 to be sure individual offices are open before getting out on the roads.
During hazardous weather conditions, employees are encouraged to report to work only if they can do so safely. Employees who cannot report to work should use appropriate leave. Page 17 of the Knox County Employee Handbook addresses inclement weather situations. Employees should refer to the handbook for more guidance.
