Mayor Cooper announces plans to further reduce COVID-19 restrictions
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Metro Nashville will likely reduce its pandemic restrictions again this week.
Mayor John Cooper announced on Friday that he plans to further ease restrictions when 20 percent of Metro’s residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
As of Monday morning, a little over 17 percent of Nashvillians have been inoculated.
When the 20 percent mark is reached, Cooper is promising to reduce capacity restrictions on bars, restaurants, indoor meetings, stadiums, museums, gyms, and sporting events, along with salons and other personal contact businesses.
Cooper is promising still more reductions when the 30 percent innoculation mark is reached.
