NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville is tightening restrictions to fight the surging coronavirus by limiting gatherings to eight people.

Mayor John Cooper announced the new limit Thursday. It is a reduction from the current gathering limit of 25 people.

The mayor's office said the change takes effect Monday. It applies to public and private gatherings, whether at a restaurant or in a backyard.

Cooper urged people to follow the eight-person limit or to gather with only one other family group.

He said officials will take a stricter look at applications to hold larger events over the next two weeks.
