REOPENING NASHVILLE – PHASE ONE – AND A FLORIDA UPDATE
On Thursday, May 21, 2020, Mayor Cooper announced that starting Monday, May 25, 2020, phase two of Nashville’s four-part reopening plan will begin. Phase two allows for the reopening of businesses such as gyms, hair, and nail salons at 50% capacity. Business at salons will be by appointments only; walk-ins will not be permitted, and capacity will be limited to 10 people. Gyms and fitness facilities must limit the use of shared equipment and sanitize frequently.
Additionally, live music can return in a phased format with no more than 25 people in the music venue and no more than two performers can be on the stage at one time. Dance floors, however, will remain closed. Moving on to phase two of reopening Nashville also allows for restaurants and bars serving food currently operating at 50% capacity to now begin operating at 75% capacity for dine-in customers. Bars serving alcohol only, however, will remain closed. Mayor Cooper stated that employees working at these businesses must still be screened daily and wear masks.
An update for our Florida clients – the beaches and short term rentals are open! The restaurants are at 50% capacity, and retail has re-opened as well. Kelli is currently in Florida and is encouraged by the respect and distancing those living in or visiting Florida are exhibiting.
