Topping our news today…
Law enforcement agencies in Bradley County are offering an opportunity for misdemeanor Failure To Appear (FTA) offenders to “hit the reset button.” These offenders will be given the opportunity from 9 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26th through Friday, May 29th to report to the Bradley County Brian K. Smith Inmate Workhouse in order to receive their new court date.
BCSO Sheriff Steve Lawson, CPD Chief Mark Gibson and District Attorney General Steve Crump have come together to offer an opportunity for any misdemeanor FTA offenders to come to the Bradley County Justice Center and have their cases reset on the docket without having to go to jail. No defendant who appears to have his/her case reset will be arrested for their misdemeanor, but will have their cases reset for a future date.
Bradley County’s “Hit the Reset Button Week” will take place at the Brian K. Smith Inmate Workhouse 9-4 p.m. beginning Tuesday, May 26 until Friday, May 29. Anyone with an outstanding misdemeanor FTA in Bradley County is encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. All appropriate social distancing guidelines will be followed during the course of this four-day event.
From WRCB Channel 3…
Tennessee continues to advance the state’s reopening plan under the Tennessee Pledge, as the Economic Recovery Group issued updated guidelines today for restaurants and retail, along with new guidelines that enable attractions and larger venues to reopen with social distancing and capacity restrictions on or after May 22.
The State continues to meet the White House gating criteria with a downward trend in case growth, increase in testing capability, and sufficient hospital capacity.
The updated guidelines enable restaurants and retail to increase capacity as long as social distancing protocols remain in place. Restaurants should continue to space tables 6 feet apart, or install physical barriers where adequate separation isn’t possible. Bars remain closed unless used for seated, in-restaurant dining where there are 6 feet of separation between customer groups. Live music is permissible with appropriate precautions, which include maintaining at least 15 feet of separation between performers and the audience in order to reduce potential exposure.
Large, non-contact attractions and venues including concert and performance venues, amusement and water parks, auditoriums, theaters and dinner theaters, zoos, large museums and more can also reopen safely under new Tennessee Pledge guidelines. Strong measures to protect employees and customers are recommended, including screening of employees and customers, creating plans for managing guest flow, and limiting capacity to ensure separation between small groups.
