COVID-19 in Nashville

‘Heatmaps’ continue to show COVID-19 case clusters in downtown and South Nashville.

Last week, Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced the order closing all bars in Nashville and requiring restaurants serving alcohol to shut down by 10 p.m. daily has been extended through at least mid-August.

All “transpotainment” vehicles are banned from the streets of Nashville and Davidson County as of July 31, regardless of whether there is alcohol on-board, according to the Metro Public Health Department.

Metro police stopped and cited two “transpotainment” vehicles seen operating Saturday night on Broadway.

Metro Health is investigating a house party held over the weekend at an East Nashville home. Videos circulated on social media showing the party on Fern Avenue Saturday night, billed as “Fashion House,” where hundreds of people appeared crammed together, with no masks in sight.

“Every room I went into in that home was just people front to back just partying, I saw maybe a handful of people with masks on,” a party guest told News 2.

Nashville is still in the modified Phase Two of its reopening plan for the “foreseeable future,” according to Cooper.
