Tennesseans and businesses may return to work in all industries where that can be safely accomplished by following health guidelines, while urging employers to allow or require remote work/telework if possible. Tennesseans are urged to continue limiting activity and staying home as much as possible to preserve and build on the health progress we’ve made.
All employers and businesses that choose to open are expected to comply with the Governor’s Economic Recovery Group (ERG) Guidelines for operating safely, as well as general health guidelines from the CDC and other government entities.
Social and recreational gatherings of 10 people or more are prohibited, including but not limited to festivals, fairs, parades, youth and adult sporting events, and overnight summer youth camps.
This does not cover places of worship, for which there will be guidelines for safe operation of worship services and gatherings if in-person services are conducted, but the order strongly encourages places of worship to continue virtual or online services where possible.
This does not prohibit weddings and funerals, but encourages postponement of large-gathering components of such events.
Entertainment and recreational gathering venues must remain closed to the public for now, including, but not limited to, bars, night clubs, live performance venues, bowling alleys, arcades, concert and sporting event venues, theaters, auditoriums, performing arts centers, racetracks, indoor children’s play areas, adult entertainment venues, amusement parks, senior centers, and skating rinks.
Limited service restaurants can serve food to customers seated at tables but must follow the ERG Guidelines for restaurants in doing so.
Close-contact personal service businesses must remain closed to the public for now, including, but not limited to, barber shops, salons, spas, body-art/tattoo services, tanning salons, and massage facilities.
