The department has been keeping daily statistics with 2,683 confirmed cases Wednesday, up by 444 from the 2,239 reported the day before.
Statewide coronavirus records are also broken down into age categories.
The age group with the highest number is the 21-30 year bracket with 637 confirmed coronavirus cases.
Tennesseans age 51-60 are next in line with 456, followed by the 31-40 age bracket with 426.
Next in order is the 41-50 age group with 417 cases, followed by the 61-70 age division with 308, the 71-80 age group with 175, age 11-20 with 131, older than age 80 with 79 cases and infants to 10-year-olds with 33 cases.
The Department of Health reports list 21 pending cases not linked to age groups.
As a result of the disease’s presence in the immediate area, the Health Department is offering coronavirus tests, Public Information Officer Amanda Goodhard said.
Goodhard said that anyone with breathing conditions and other flu-like symptoms common with COVID-19 should first consult with their physician, who can probably administer a coronavirus test.
If that isn’t an option, testing can be done at the Health Department’s office at 266 Joyce Lane in Winchester, she said.
As of Wednesday, 68 tests administered in Franklin County showed negative coronavirus results.
Goodhard said anyone wishing to access the Health Department should call 931-967-3826 for further information and to set up an appointment. She added that strict social-distancing practices are in place due to the coronavirus threat.
In addition to Franklin County, two coronavirus cases have been reported in Lincoln County, six in Grundy County, eight in Marion, four in Bedford and one in Coffee.
Nationwide, 186,101 have contracted coronavirus with 3,603 succumbing to the disease.
