Health Director Order 9 Amendment 1: Phase 2 with Modifications: Reopening

Pursuant to the Declaration of Public Health Emergency adopted by the Board of Health for Nashville and Davidson County on March 15, 2020

On July 2, 2020, the Chief Medical Director issued Order 9, Phase Two with Modifications: Reopening, pursuant to the Declaration of Public Health Emergency adopted by the Board of Health for Nashville and Davidson County on March 15, 2020.

Order 9 from the Chief Medical Director revised certain sections in Amended and Restated Order 7 from the Chief Medical Director issued on June 29, 2020.

Based on considerations contained in the Roadmap, the significant increase in numbers in Nashville and Davidson County, and the origin of clusters of COVID-19 infections, it is appropriate to continue to pause portions of phase three and extend further a hybrid phase two.

Accordingly, to protect public health, Order 9 from the Chief Medical Director is revised as follows:

  • The first paragraph of Section 4 of Amended and Restated Order 7 from the Chief Medical Director is replaced with the following: An individual, entity or organization that holds a license as a Limited Service Restaurant (defined in T.C.A. § 57-4-102(22)) issued by the Tennessee ABC shall be closed to the public until 11:59 p.m. CDT on July 31, 2020, but may continue to provide curbside or off-premise delivery of prepared food or beverages subject to any applicable federal, state, or local laws, provided that no consumption shall occur on premises.
  • Section 5 of Amended and Restated Order 7 from the Chief Medical Director is revised to provide that bars that hold an on-premise beer permit but do not hold a license issued by the Tennessee ABC shall be closed to the public until 11:59 p.m. CDT on July 31, 2020, but may continue to provide curbside or off-premise delivery of beverages subject to any applicable federal, state, or local laws, provided that no consumption shall occur on premises. Otherwise, the provisions in Section 5 remain unchanged.
  • Amended and Restated Order 7 from the Chief Medical Director is revised to add Section 14 providing the following: Businesses holding a certificate of public convenience and necessity issued by the Metropolitan Transportation Licensing Commission (MTLC) under Metro Code of Laws (M.C.L.) Section 6.75.020 (pedicabs and pedal carriages) and limousines as defined in M.C.L Section 6.74.010 shall close to the public. No individual holding a driver’s permit issued by the MTLC under M.C.L. Section 6.75.110 shall operate a pedicab or pedal carriage for the purpose of transporting any member of the public.

Except as revised herein, Amended and Restated Order 7 and Order 9 from the Chief Medical Director remain unchanged and in effect.

This Order is hereby issued and effective at 12:01 a.m. CDT on July 17, 2020 and shall remain in effect through 11:59 p.m. CDT on July 31, 2020, subject to extension.

Date: July 16, 2020
