BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) – You can expect to see some some eased COVID-19 restrictions next time you enter Bristol, Tennessee municipal buildings or try to go to a city playground.
City Manager Bill Sorah announced plans to ease the restrictions last week.
Buildings like city hall and the Ewell L. Easley Municipal Annex are reopening after being closed to the public for the past nine weeks.
All visitors to the buildings will be subject to a health screening when entering, which could include temperature scans and questions related to the COVID-19 virus.
