TN Ranked 3rd Most Open State in the Nation

Tennessee is tied as the third most “open for business” state in the nation.

The website Zippia has Montana and North Dakota coming in as one and two. Georgia is close behind at fifth and Alabama sixth. They ranked states based on three criteria:

  • Date restrictions were lifted
  • Business capacity
  • The number COVID-19 tests given per the amount of positive cases

North Carolina and Kentucky are still closed up, ranked as 36th and 39th respectively.

The website cites the stay-at-home order for Tennessee expiring April 30th and over 280,000 tests administered versus 6,111 confirmed cases.
