NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Metro Nashville’s 694 thousand residents are the last in Tennessee who remain under a full coronavirus lockdown.

Gov. Bill Lee allowed his statewide “Safer-at-Home” order to expire at the end of April.

Knoxville began a slow-roll restart on Friday. Memphis allowed some businesses to reopen Monday.

Citing a continuing rise in infection rates, Nashville Mayor John Cooper has put off a Music City reboot until at least Friday. 

Nashville has reported an average of 100 new infections per day over the past week.

The Cooper Administration has prepared an extensive plan that will govern the city’s restart once it does begin. You can review that document here.
