Bars, construction sites among COVID-19 ‘hotspots’ in Nashville

Coronavirus

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Bars, construction sites, correctional facilities and a manufacturing plant are among the sites linked to approximately 2,600 coronavirus cases in Nashville since the start of the pandemic, according to the Metro Public Health Department.

The list of 49 sites, detailing clusters of more than ten cases identified since mid-March, was compiled by the health department and obtained by News 2 Monday night.

Tyson Foods tops the list with approximately 280 cases, followed by 216 cases at the Debra Johnson Rehabilitation Center, formerly the Tennessee Prison for Women. Rounding out the top three is the Nashville Rescue Mission and the Nashville Fairgrounds with 156 cases.

The list also includes six downtown and midtown bars, comprising 114 cases — Losers, Tootsies, Dogwood, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk, Dawghouse Saloon and Winners. The Metro Public Health Department has said the actual number of cases at bars is likely higher because of tourists who come and go, making it difficult to trace them.

Five construction sites are also included in the clusters, totaling 185 cases. The sites listed are the Montgomery Bell Academy job site, Broad West construction, the Lipscomb Elam Hall job site, the Grand Hyatt Hotel job site and the Rolling Mill Hill job site.

Nineteen assisted living facilities make up approximately 950 cases, while six correctional facilities account for 557 cases.
