NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Nashville Metro Police reported issuing 18 citations and making three arrests on Broadway Saturday due to mask order violations.

The department announced the arrests and citations in a tweet saying the people were violating Davidson County’s mandatory mask order.

“Please do your part & wear a mask,” the tweet reads.

Nashville CBS affiliate WTVF reported that this came after Nashville’s Lower Broadway area downtown gained national attention for drawing crowds during the pandemic.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper has asked tourists to either follow the rules or stay home, WTVF reports.

“If you are willing to follow the rules and respect the health and dignity of those living and working in our community, you are welcome here,” he said. “Otherwise, Nashville is not the place for you.”
