NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An employee at Sevier Park Community Center has tested positive for COVID-19.

Due to the guidelines on reopening, the Metro Parks and Recreation Department believes the likelihood of the spread of the virus from the employee is minimal.

The center is operating at 50% capacity, all staff and patrons must wear a mask, restrooms are limited to only two people at a time and water fountains and meeting rooms have been closed.

The employee was last at work on June 6 but was sent home after a temperature check which is required before each shift.

Three days later, the department was notified the employee had officially tested positive for COVID-19.

Metro Parks said the community center has been cleaned and sanitized. It will remain open to the public under phase two guidelines.

The employee is self-isolating at home.
