MPHD Daily COVID-19 Update for November 25
Note: The Metro Public Health Department will issue a limited daily COVID report on Friday, Saturday and Sunday that will include the number of new cases and new deaths. We will return to issuing the full report again on Monday, November 30.
Note: The Tennessee Department of Health processed a lower number of tests due to a systems issue. TDH anticipates the bulk of the tests which normally would have been processed will be included in the daily case count update over the next few days.
Metro Public Health Department officials announced today 43,176 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nashville/Davidson County.
There have been no new probable cases in the past 24 hours.
Probable cases refer to those that have supporting epidemiological and clinical evidence that a COVID-19 infection has occurred, regardless of test result. If a person is a close contact of a COVID-19 case and has a clinically compatible illness, he or she can meet the criteria to be a probable case. Additionally, a positive result of an antigen test from a respiratory specimen can meet the criteria to be a probable case. If a health care provider diagnoses a person with clinically compatible illness with COVID-19, this person meets the probable case criteria.
Including both confirmed and probable cases, MPHD officials announced a total of 43,941 cases, an increase of 21 in the past 24 hours.
The cases range in age from 1 month to 103 years.
There have been no new probable deaths reported in the past 24 hours.
When the health care provider who signs the death certificate determines 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.
There have been eight new confirmed deaths reported in the past 24 hours, including an 86-year-old man, a 79-year-old woman, a 72-year-old man, a 68-year-old woman, a 60-year-old woman, a 58-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man, all with underlying health conditions, along with a 51-year-old man with a pending medical history.

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).
- Gatherings are recommended to be kept at 8 people or fewer, to the extent possible. Intimate gatherings are the most high-risk setting for transmission of COVID-19.
- 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 if possible.
- 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.
