Metro Public Health Department officials announced today 28,122 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Nashville/Davidson County.

There have been eight 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.
