While Florida has started to re-open places like Disney Springs and Universal CityWalk, Texas is in talks about opening its own theme parks to guests again.
And, now another state is making plans to re-open its larger tourist locations.
According to News 4 Nashville, Tennessee’s Economic Recovery Group announced 89 of the state’s 95 counties will move into the next phase of re-opening on May 22nd.
This transition allows restaurants, shops, and larger attractions — like theme parks — to re-open with safety measures in place.
Some of the large attractions included in the phased re-opening are:
- Race tracks
- Amusement parks
- Water parks
- Dinner theaters
- Large museums
These attractions must “practice social distancing with strong measures to protect employees and customers.”
Governor Bill Lee stated, “We’re able to allow restaurants and retail businesses to operate at greater capacity and large attractions to open in a safe and thoughtful way.”
He said the “state continues to see downward trends in case growth and meets the White House criteria for a phased reopening.” Although, he urged citizens to continue to wear makes and wash their hands.
In closing, he stated “By taking the Tennessee Pledge, our businesses can reopen in a way that protects the health of their customers and employees, and protects the livelihoods of hard-working Tennesseans.”
Anakeesta is scheduled to open May 21st and others such as Dollywood and Lake Winnepesaukah are still planning their re-openings. We will keep you updated as we learn more!
