NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor John Cooper’s office issued the following announcements regarding Metro’s citywide coronavirus (COVID-19) monitoring and response efforts in coordination with area hospitals, healthcare providers, medical colleges, and other community partners.

METRO PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT

Metro Public Health Department officials announced today a total number of 6,873 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nashville/Davidson County.

Additionally, MPHD reports 12 probable cases of COVID-19.

Probable cases refer to those that do not test positive in a diagnostic test but might have tested positive in a different form of test like an antibody or serologic test. Probable cases also could refer to cases that were never tested but exhibited the factors consistent with a COVID-19 infection, like symptoms and close contacts of confirmed cases.

Including both confirmed and probable cases, MPHD officials announced a total of 6,885 cases, an increase of 67 in the past 24 hours.

The cases range in age from 1 month to 100 years.

There have been no new probable deaths in the past 24 hours.

When the health care provider signs the death certificate determined COVID-19 disease was the cause of death or a significant condition contributing to death, this person meets the probable case criteria and would be considered a probable death.

A total of eighty (80) people in Davidson County have died after a confirmed case of COVID-19. Including both confirmed and probable cases, 83 deaths have been attributed to COVID-19.

5,478 individuals have recovered from the virus.

Health officials remind everyone to take steps to stop the spread of germs like COVID-19. These include:

  • Practice social distancing as defined by the CDC (6 feet of distance from others). Do not gather in groups larger than 25.
  • Wear a cloth face covering when in a community setting, especially in situations where you may be near people. These face coverings are not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Stay at home as much as possible. People over 65 years of age or whose health is at risk should remain at home unless absolutely necessary.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
