NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — This week both the state of Tennessee and the city of Nashville have announced their first plans to re-open the economy in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The state and Metro obviously have the same goal, but they are approaching the re-open somewhat differently, and it appears on somewhat different time frames. For example, it appears the state plans to open a number of businesses on a limited basis (restaurants and retail) early next week, while Metro seems more likely to begin reopening a little later in May. Our guest this week on INSIDE POLITICS is Dr Alex Jahangir, Chairman of the Metro Board of Health & Chair of the Metro Coronavirus Task Force.
