Half of newly diagnosed coronavirus patients in the state say they don’t know where they may have contracted the virus, said Dr. Lisa Piercey, commissioner for the Department of Public Health.
Piercey said that indicates many of the new cases are from community spread.
She said state officials are still waiting on Tuesday’s case numbers but said they are trending up. The daily average has increased in the past two weeks, Piercey said.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said they are closely watching coronavirus trends after Tennessee experienced its highest single-day case total last week.
