Entire state of Tennessee has ‘unacceptable’ transmission

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – A new report from the Tennessee Department of Health says the entire state is now at an unacceptable level of transmission for COVID-19.

The final two counties went over the threshold Friday.

That mark also comes on a day where Tennessee saw one of its worst days for single day COVID-19 cases.

The state health department reported another 3,088 new cases Friday. The new cases give Tennessee just under 106,000 total cases; 1,060 people have died so far.

Over 66,000 people have recovered from the virus, while the state surpassed 1.5 million total tests administered on Friday.
