How is shutting down the entire economy "practical?"

It is the people who don't want to be practical when it comes to wearing masks and social distancing who put us on the road to closing down the economy again. Florida, Arizona and Texas are examples. I'm not in favor of closing things down; I'm in favor of trying to be smart about this situation

Precisely. I don't want things to shut down again. I don't want to see the virus spread out of control. We can't 100% stop the spread, but there are some very easy, common sense things that we can do to help slow the spread. Unfortunately, a segment of the population is throwing a giant tantrum because they feel their facial comfort rights and stranger proximity rights are being violated.

What is the current regulation with regard to restaurants in Tennessee? Does it very by location and each local government sets their own?

Officially, I think it's either half or three-quarter capacity and no seating in the bar. Many places are distancing tables, but most bars I've been to serve at the bar and some places are no masks/no distancing.

Not sure about "regulation" but you can search the company website for the locations that are open for dine in or just takeout. About 1/2 of the booths or tables may be marked with "Don't sit here" signs. No more cups to get condiments. No dispensers with condiments. Your "order number" may be on paper post it note.

It would appear not all counties are in the same shape. May be smart to search TN Department of Health site for those counties below threshold limits.

So if restaurants are at half capacity that has to be a local law or rule. Which is an absolute good one. Hopefully between that and the carryout business they can stay afloat. They have to keep them open if it all possible but they also need to be safe or they may shut down again as we have seen in other parts of the country.

My understanding is that some county health departments also have the authority to establish their own guidelines, so you may find it varies from place to place. Best bet would probably go the gov't. website for the county you're interested in.

Oh I was just curious. With an at risk wife I think I'll avoid an area where a cashier coughs with no mask or even covering her mouth. No we need to avoid an area with so many with that mindset. Too bad, I was thinking about another trip this summer/fall.
