Change in TDH reporting slashes number of active COVID-19 cases in Coffee County

Coffee County’s active cases of COVID-19 have been slashed considerably, after Tennessee Department of Health on Thursday announced a different method of reporting cases to the public.

TDH announced Thursday that it would no longer report “recovered” cases, but would instead report inactive and recovered cases – which are cases that are 14 days or more beyond their illness or onset date and who are not deceased. TDH also announced that approximately 1,700 cases statewide needed a correction for county of residence.

After these adjustments, TDH is now reporting that there are now 114 active cases of COVID-19 in Coffee County. This is down from 271 reported as active the previous day.
