Tennessee, Mississippi and Montana are the latest states to ease coronavirus restrictions and allow some businesses to reopen this week. 

Those states follow Georgia, Oklahoma and Alaska, which already lightened lockdown requirements to get people back to work, according to Fox News

In Tennessee, restaurants will be allowed to open today with 50% capacity in 89 of the state’s 95 counties, Gov. Bill Lee’s office said in a news release.

Retailers are scheduled to reopen Wednesday under the same rules, with workers in both industries asked to wear face coverings and follow federal guidelines regarding hygiene under the governor's plan, called the "Tennessee Pledge.”

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed a “Safer at Home” executive order on Friday, which will allow most retailers to open today with 50% reduced capacity. His office said businesses that can’t avoid social contact like gyms are not allowed to reopen.

Montana allowed churchgoers to attend services on Sunday. Gov. Steve Bullock signed off on allowing bars, restaurants and casinos to open on May 4. Gyms, pools, movie theaters and bowling alleys will remain closed.
