Nashville issues citations for businesses ignoring pandemic restrictions
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Nashville put some teeth in its pandemic Emergency Health Orders over the weekend.
Fourteen Metro businesses were issued citations by city health inspectors for coronavirus crisis orders non-compliance. A court will decide any fines.
