Across the country Mayors and Governors have closed restaurants, bars and other businesses because of COVID19. Many are now open with government mandated capacity limits. Nashville, TN is among them.
There's very little evidence the coronavirus is spreading in restaurants in the Music City, even after a contract tracing program put in place to track where cases are spreading. The Democrat Mayor had this inconvenient fact in this email as the administration tried to conceal this from the public.
And he's trying to conceal the information from the public.
On June 30th, contact tracing was given a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes were found to be causing problems with more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.
The email says:
“My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site.
We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number."
How many other Mayors and Governors are abusing the public trust like this?
