ROADMAP FOR REOPENING: PHASE 3
We have now entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap for Reopening Nashville. The city will remain in Phase 3 for a minimum of four weeks. Health officials continue to emphasize safety measures, including social distancing, wearing face coverings, and keeping social gatherings to 25 people or less.
Phase 3 Highlights: Restaurants and retail businesses continue at 75% capacity. Bars now open at 50% capacity. No limit on the number of musicians as long as they social distance on stage. Museums and attractions continue at 50% capacity. Event spaces and small music venues now open; must cap maximum attendance or crowd size at 50% capacity or 250 attendees. Gyms and high-touch businesses, such as nail and hair salons, continue at 50% capacity. All Metro parks and facilities now open. Personal gatherings should be kept at 25 people to the extent possible. Businesses should continue to work at home if possible. This is a safer option for businesses and employees. Residents 65 and older or with underlying health conditions should remain at home whenever possible. Everyone should wear a face mask or face covering when leaving home. Everyone should keep at least 6 feet from others at all times when in the community. Health officials have issued eight additional citations and received 310 complaints. Of those complaints, 261 complaints involved employees not wearing face coverings. We join Mayor Cooper and public health officials in encouraging you to not patronize businesses that do not follow safety guidelines, including face coverings on employees and proper social distancing protocols. We are as anxious as you are for Nashville to continue to move forward in the reopening process. But let’s do so properly, safely, and for the long haul. We are here to help you navigate safety guidelines from the city, state, and CDC to provide a healthy environment for your customers. Tune in to the Mayor’s press conference at 9:30am on Thursdays for the most up-to-date information. It is carried on all local TV channels.
