The Full Throttle Bar and Grill in Nashville, Tennessee has been ordered to remain closed through the end of July after state public health inspectors identified some COVID-19 public safety violations. According to the information released by the Nashville Metro Health inspectors in the court on July 22nd, the said establishment has allegedly violated COVID-19 health codes while conducting its operations. Based on these allegations and the evidence provided in their support, the court ordered the Nashville bar and restaurant to remain closed until the end of the month of July.
Located at the Swinging Bridge Rd in Old Hickory, the Full Throttle Bar and Grill has been a popular drinking hole in the Nashville city. When the state of Tennessee had resumed its businesses in a phased manner over the last few weeks, the bar had reopened its doors to customers. Regular customers began revisiting their favorite bar and soon, the establishment was seen packed with people. When the Nashville Metro Health Inspectors visited the place in early July, their public health inspection report clearly stated that the Full Throttle Bar and Grill had violated the Metro Health Order 2.36.190
According to this order, any person or organization is considered unlawful when violates an order of the chief medical director of the sate or the board of health of the city. The bar owners agreed that they failed to abide by the orders of Nashville’s health leaders which ordered several of the city’s limited-service restaurants to shut their businesses on July 19th. The court order clearly stated that the bar owners were unlawful in allowing “on-premise consumption” and failed to maintain spaced out occupancy in their dining areas.
Owing to this court order, the restaurant-bar has agreed to say closed through July 31 or even beyond, until any further notice from the Nashville Metro Health Director. If this order gets disobeyed by the Nashville bar, then the city leaders would impose a strict punishment under the Class “C” Misdemeanor.
In related news, Nashville recently received a call from Washington, in which the White House Coronavirus Task Force urged the city mayor to take aggressive steps for curbing the COVID-19 spread. As of July 23rd, 2020, over 80,000 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Tennessee, with an average daily hike of 2000 cases and the total deaths amounting to 878.
