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:

The state has a new map available that gives a little more data by zip code.  To get to the map, click here:, then select the “Recent trends by Zip Code” tab and select “Upper Cumberland Region” to see the 21-Day Testing and Case Rates for various zip codes.

* Hospitalization data reflect the cumulative (total) number of cases of Cumberland County residents that were ever hospitalized from COVID-19. It does not reflect the number of people currently hospitalized.  This does not mean the patient was hospitalized in Cumberland County.  It means that a Cumberland County resident was hospitalized at some point.

Thank you for being part of the solution and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your County Mayor.  If you are interested in hearing my thoughts and views on news, events, and activities in Cumberland County, please subscribe to my newsletter, and follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
