Retail + Restaurants Reopening in Tennessee

Businesses are reopening in Tennessee with guidelines for social distancing and protective gear. Right now, it’s just restaurants and retail stores but we can expect to see similar guidelines as more services, including salons and gyms, reopen soon.

Businesses will want to start planning for reopening by ordering their stocks of PPE and social distancing materials, including floor decals to ensure they are keeping customers safe and staying compliant for guidelines for reopning.

Check out some highlights from the article from the Tennessean here:

Restaurants throughout Tennessee will be allowed to have in-person, albeit limited, capacity dining provided employees wear masks and gloves starting Monday while retail stores can begin reopening on Wednesday with similar precautions, according to a plan from Gov. Bill Lee.

At the same time, the governor said close contact services, including barbershops, salons, massage and tattoo parlors, will remain closed until additional guidelines are issued and protective gear secured.

Businesses that can have employees work from home are encouraged to continue such practices.

The state’s guidelines also recommend employees at restaurants and retail stores undergo temperature checks upon arrival or before reporting to work.
