Nashville Mayor John Cooper today announced revisions to Metro public health Order 9. The amended order from the Metro Public Health Department provides for the closure of pedicabs, pedal carriages, and limousines and extends the closure of all bars and limited service restaurants through the end of July. Curbside and delivery of food and beverages is still permitted.

“Based on considerations contained in the Roadmap, the significant increase in numbers in Nashville and Davidson County, and the origin of clusters of COVID-19 infections, it is appropriate to continue to pause portions of phase three and extend further a hybrid phase two,” reads the order.
