Nashville To Enter Reopening Phase 2 On May 25, Including Live Music

Nashville Mayor John Cooper has announced that Davidson County will enter Phase 2 in its “Roadmap for Reopening Nashville” on Monday, May 25.

“This Monday, May 25, we will move on to Phase 2 of reopening Nashville,” Cooper said in Thursday morning’s briefing. “All public health metrics have shown satisfactory results.”

Phase 2 of the plan now includes verbiage that restaurants and retail companies can open at 75% of capacity (while maintaining social distancing), and live music can be phased back in at restaurants, with no more than two performers on stage at one time. Social distancing protocols must also be observed among performers, with a minimum of 10 feet between performers and customers. No dance floors are permitted, and all equipment must be sanitized between users.

Additionally, small gatherings of 25 or fewer people are allowed, with strict social distancing protocols implemented. These gatherings can include parties, weddings and meetings.

The Metro Public Health Department also stated on Thursday (May 21) that there have been 26 new cases of COVID-19 in Davidson County within the past 24 hours, increasing the county’s number of cases to 4,530. One additional death from COVID-19 was announced in Davidson County (a 91-year-old female with underlying health conditions), raising the death toll in in the county to 51.
