Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said gyms in 89 of Tennessee's 95 counties will be allowed to reopen on Friday, May 1.
"Restaurants are beginning to open. Retail outlets are set to open tomorrow, and today we are announcing that gyms will be allowed to reopen on Friday," Lee said.
Gyms must reduce capacity to 50%, utilize social distancing, and remove shared equipment, he said.
Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey also spoke at the news conference announcing the state has met the White House's new testing guidance.
"President Trump asked last night for states to do 2% of their population of testing each month. We have already done that in the month of April, and we are making plans to do that going forward," Piercey said.
"About 135,000 tests have been done this month. That's about 2% of our state's population," she added.
