In the weeks since Governor Lee implemented the Safer at Home order, Tennessee mounted a significant effort to improve testing and healthcare capacity. The state has made steady progress to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Jackson County has had steady testing up to April 20, at which time we saw a significant decrease in people being tested. We appreciate all those who helped with the marketing campaign to get our number of tests up. We had 61 tests administered on the 22 and 53 on the 23. Our residents are doing a good job of practicing social distancing, and I hope that continues to be the case in the future.
