Each day at 2pm, the Tennessee Department of Health will post updated COVID-19 cases including county of residence at www.tn.gov/health/cedep/ncov.html.
We will include this information below as well and update it each day.
Last update: April 3, 2pm
Total Positive Results: 3,067
Previous Day’s Total (April 2): 2,845
|Van Buren County||0||21|
|Out of state||187||5,458||1|
Please note regarding case counts: This data changes rapidly as labs conduct tests and identify new cases. Labs assign those cases to a county or leave that information blank. Metro and regional health departments then determine the appropriate county of jurisdiction during their public health investigation. We’re working to reduce the “pending” number to 0. Contact the local health department for county specific information. Cases among Tennessee residents are counted by their county of residence. Residents of other states who were tested at Tennessee healthcare facilities are counted as “Out of TN”.
|Age Ranges of Confirmed Cases|
|TDH defines “recovered” as people who (1) have been confirmed to be asymptomatic by their local or regional health department and have completed their required isolation period or (2) are at least 21 days beyond the first test confirming their illness.|
|Laboratory Type||Positive Test||Negative Tests||Total|
|State PH Lab||317||2,065||2,382|
|Non-State PH Lab||2,750||32,707||35,457|
|* Please note, these data are meant to provide a rough estimate of testing volume. Due to different source data, numbers may differ slightly from day to day.
** Laboratory reports of positive cases are reported to metro and local health departments as soon as results are available. State numbers are updated at 2pm daily and there may be a lag in the reporting of cumulative numbers at the state level.
|Please note for hospitalizations: Information about hospitalization status is gathered at the time of diagnosis, therefore this information may be incomplete. This number indicates the number of patients that were ever hospitalized during their illness, it does not indicate the number of patients currently hospitalized.|
|Please note for deaths: Some deaths may be reported by health care providers, hospitals, medical examiners, local health departments, or others before they are included in the statewide count.|
Tennesseans are encouraged to take routine precautions used in guarding against respiratory viruses:
• 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
• Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
• Stay home if you are sick
• Stay away from people who are sick
Most patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection have mild respiratory illness with fever, cough and shortness of breath. A smaller number of patients have severe symptoms requiring hospitalization.
