Do the Bristol stomp

Salena Zito visits State Street in Bristol - where the Tennessee side is open and the Virginia side - across two lanes of traffic - is still on lockdown.
There are a lot of towns in our country that border neighboring states, but few quite like this one, where the town sits in two states and shares the same name and traditionally vibrant business district along State Street.
Thanks to very different approaches to reopening their states, the businesses on the Tennessee side were open Saturday, while the Virginia side businesses, with the exception of curbside pickup operations at The Burger Bar and the legendary Blakey-Mitchel men’s clothing store a few blocks away, are nearly all closed.
