Tenn. Gov. Bill Lee to sign executive order allowing people to gather in groups of 50, up from 10


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL)- Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced Thursday that he will be signing an executive order that will allow groups of 50 people to gather at a time.

The previous order stated that only groups of 10 people could gather at a time.

Lee said in part that he signed the new order to “really create more consistency to allow us to open up our economy and to open up our lives in a safe way, but in a greater way moving forward.”

This annoucement follows news from the state Economic Recovery Group that would allow amusement parts to reopen on Friday.
