Governor Bill Lee announced Tennessee will lift capacity restrictions on restaurants/retail, and allow for large attractions to open starting May 22nd.


On Friday, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and the Economic Recovery Group announced they will lift capacity restrictions on restaurants/ retail as well as release guidelines to allow for larger non-contact attractions to begin opening on or after May 22nd.

The Large attraction guidance applies to businesses that are able to practice social distancing which includes the following attractions:

"race tracks
amusement parks
water parks
dinner theaters
large museums"

Although restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people remain in effect for the time being.

According to Governor Bill, “We’re able to allow restaurants and retail businesses to operate at greater capacity and large attractions to open in a safe and thoughtful way. Our state continues to see downward trends in case growth and meets the White House criteria for a phased reopening. This progress has been hard-won, and we can build upon it by reopening while also maintaining common-sense safety measures like mask-wearing and good hygiene. By taking the Tennessee Pledge, our businesses can reopen in a way that protects the health of their customers and employees, and protects the livelihoods of hard-working Tennesseans.”
