Hundreds of Nashvillians still waiting for city to come unlock doors after end of lockdown




Nashville, TN - According to reports, hundreds of Nashvillians are still waiting for a city representative to come unlock their doors over 24 hours after the end of the stay-at-home order.


"They're worse than the cable company," one man wrote on social media. "I haven't left my apartment for six weeks. They said it was over yesterday; They should have been here yesterday! Come unlock my doors NOW! I want to go out!"


A staff member at the Mayor's office said they've received dozens of calls from citizens asking when Mayor Cooper will be by to remove the padlocks. The Mayor's team is working diligently to correct the misunderstanding.


A spokesperson released the following statement, "We want to assure anyone who is waiting for someone to come let them out of their homes that they have the power and ability to do it themselves from the inside."


One man we spoke to, responded, "Yeah, right. Do they think we're that stupid? They're just trying to buy time to get their people out here by saying it's our fault we're stuck in here. Well, I'm not falling for it. I'm going to keep calling until someone comes out and does their darn job."


The Mayor's staff says they are currently working on step-by-step instructions for anyone needing a refresher on how to open their doors.
