Gov. Bill Lee announced today that starting next week, restaurants and retail stores throughout the majority of the state will no longer need to limit capacity. In addition, he announced that large attractions such as  amusement parks, theaters, museums and auditoriums will be allowed to reopen starting May 22, provided they practice appropriate social distancing. For social gatherings, however, the limit on 10 or more people will remain in place, the Tennessean reports. These changes will affect 89 counties with the remainder — Davidson, Hamilton, Knox, Madison, Shelby and Sullivan — following their own reopening plans.
