NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Nashville Police and health inspectors continue to hand out citations at non-essential businesses failing to comply with closure orders.

 

Mayor John Cooper ordered all non-essential businessess closed in late March in an effort to blunt the spread of coronavirus.

 

MNPD said in a Twitter post Monday that officers have accompanied health inspectors on 209 “compliance checks” since April 1.

 

Police say 32 warnings have been issued, but so far no citations.

 

Metro has launched an online web form where you can report non-essential businesses that remain open.
