As Governor Lee continues to allow re-openings for phases of Tennessee's economy, he outlined plans to allow small group recreation businesses to open starting Friday, May 8th.
This applies to 89 of Tennessee's 95 counties that operate under the umbrella of the state's Department of Health, but excludes Davidson County.
Small group recreation businesses include bowling alleys, putt-putt golf courses, and similar family activities. It does not apply to larger gatherings at places like zoos, aquariums, or museums.
In addition, the governor announced that free, washable face coverings were available to be picked up at all 95 health department locations around the state of Tennessee
Close contact businesses such as barbershops and hair salons are allowed to re-open at 50% capacity and with strict safety guidelines beginning today, as most of the state enters Phase 1 of the government's plan for re-opening the economy.
Phase 2 will allow for other businesses to re-open and restrictions to be loosened, but phases will be rolled out slowly and based on 2-week trends in the pandemic's numbers here in the state.
Will you be visiting a bowling alley this weekend when it re-opens?
