NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The public health order that requires Nashville restaurants to close dine-service at 10 p.m. has been extended until August 16. Metro Health also amended the order, closing all transpotainment businesses until that date.
The Metro Public Health Department said the amended order went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Friday and will continue through 11:59 p.m. on August 16. For now, Nashville will remain in its modified Phase Two of reopening.
The amended Order 9 now requires restaurants to close their dining rooms between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Take-out, window, drive-through or curbside service and delivery may continue after 10 p.m.
Metro also modified the order to prohibit alcohol sales via take-out, window, and curbside delivery between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Additionally, all customers must be off site between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
All transpotainment businesses, including pedicabs, pedal carriages and limousines must also close. The previous order allowed them to continue operating as long as alcohol wasn't being served. Metro also said businesses that transport more than 15 passengers, including the driver, must also close – except those operated by the Metro Transit Authority and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
