Given the escalating public health concerns nationwide, many Nashville businesses have taken necessary action to encourage social distancing and to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Sadly, this comes with a hefty cost and the entire city will face the economic impact of this pandemic. From restaurants and bars to gyms and fitness studios, musicians and artists to teachers, much of our city will be directly affected. That being said, it’s time to get creative to keep Music City afloat.
To comply with the CDC and local authority guidelines, Nashville restaurants have reduced their dining room capacity with many pivoting exclusively to take-out and delivery options. Most bars in Davidson County have closed indefinitely. Musicians’ tours have been canceled, venues and retail stores closed, the list goes on.
We’ve already seen these businesses and artists come up with innovative ways to navigate social distancing and continue to stimulate their income. Below, you will find a list of ways to continue to support these Nashvillians. This is our home and you are our neighbors. If you or your business has been impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, please let us know below, and we’ll spread the word:
