Other Ole Red locations have already started to open with safety guidelines in place. For example, menus, silverware, and condiments are all single use and disposable, temperature checks and PPE for employees, tables set six feet apart, only tables of 6 people or less, no standing waiting in the restaurant.
Many attractions in Gatlinburg have reopened and crowds have flooded the streets again. However, may have had to remain closed.
