NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) — After Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill that limits COVID-19 restrictions in the workplace, the state’s Comptroller’s Office announced that a website is available for business owners and other entities to file for an exemption from the bill.

A release from the Comptroller’s Office revealed that if an applicant can prove that compliance with Chapter 2 or Chapter 6 of the new law would lead to a loss of federal funding, the office would grant an exemption.

The exemptions are not permanent, the release states, and may be renewed for no more than one year.
