Nashville Bars Packed with Patrons without Masks

If you wanted to go into a downtown Nashville bar over the weekend, good luck, because they were packed, and no one was social distancing and almost no one was wearing a mask.
The lines to get inside snaked around the block while everyone partyed didn’t like 2020.
Which is particularly telling … it seems the authorities are only backing down and not enforcing the law. The City has issued an ordinance requiring people to wear face masks in public spaces – indoors and outdoors.
On top of that, Nashville’s young people – especially in the 25-year-old age group – contract the coronavirus at a higher rate than older people. No shock here, according to the video.
The mayor ordered the bars to be closed until the end of July, with one exception. Bars can stay open if they get the majority of their money from food, but only half. The video does not appear to be in sync with the law.
Towards the end of the video you see police cars, but little, if anything, as a crackdown.
