City announces outdoor dining expansion guidelines

Restaurants in the city of Memphis permitted to operate under the current Shelby County Health Directive may expand their outdoor dining space in a manner that continues to ensure public health and safety.

Generally, two types of expansions are possible – 1) onto private property adjacent to the restaurant’s structure, such as a parking lot; and 2) onto public right-of-way such as a sidewalk or street.
