County Mayor’s Notes – June 19th, 2020

Cumberland County COVID-19 Update
24 active cases (down 2 from previous day)
137 positive cases (down 1 from previous day, usually due to address correction)
110 recovered (up 1 from previous day)
3 deaths officially reported (no change from previous day)
5,836 negative tests (up 75 from previous day)
5,973 total tested (up 74 from previous day)
2.29% percent of those that have been tested were positive
10.01% percent of residents have been tested
0.23% percent of residents have tested positive
0.04% percent of residents have active cases

We are still, unfortunately, in second place in the Upper Cumberland in census response rates.  Putnam County has a response rate of 65.0% while Cumberland County is only at 59.7%.  There are seven weeks until the August 11th official start of non-response follow up operations (door knocking) and 19 weeks until response ends on October 31st.

Please take the time complete your census by visiting or calling 844-330-2020 to get counted today!  It matters.

Health Department Testing
The local Health Department (1503 South Main Street) is conducting drive through testing, free of charge, Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. No doctor’s order is required, and no appointment is necessary. Anyone can be tested regardless of symptoms. Results are generally available in about two days.

Free cloth masks are available at the Health Department for those that want one. Stop by Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 4:30 pm to pick one up for each individual in your household.

I send my newsletter updates multiple times a week, excluding the weekends, but I update my social media almost daily.  If you want to get these updates more frequently, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  These numbers are intended to be a brief summary of the information provided by the Tennessee Department of Health.  More detailed information can be found here.

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.
