An update just came through from Nashville as the Covid-19 cases continue to climb.

About an hour ago, health care reporter for The Tennessean, Brett Kelman, shared that Nashville just saw its highest daily total of cases with 771.

Then, about an hour later, the Mayor John Cooper tweeted the following:

“Due to Metro’s increase in COVID-19 cases, I have decided that all bars will remain closed until at least July 31st.”

New Channel 9 added the following:

“Metro Coronavirus Task Force Chair Dr. Alex Jahangir said during a news briefing Tuesday that coronavirus cases are on the rise and further economic reopening of Nashville is not happening at this time.

‘We will be staying in Phase Two for the foreseeable future,’ Dr. Jahangir said.”

There’s that. Stay tuned…
