NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A karaoke bar and a women’s shelter are the two latest locations to experience a cluster of COVID-19 cases in Nashville and Davidson County.
The Metro Public Health Department released an updated list Friday afternoon, detailing many of the 150 coronavirus case clusters identified since the pandemic began in March.
Since the beginning of October, two clusters have been identified by the health department — 14 cases were traced back to Miss Kelli’s, a karaoke bar in Printers Alley, and 22 cases were tied to the women’s campus of the Nashville Rescue Mission.
The list showed some of the earliest clusters, identified in March, included Vanderbilt University parties, which accounted for 49 cases, as well as an event at Clementine Hall that resulted in 23 cases. A religious retreat followed, leading to 18 recorded cases of the virus.
Some of the bigger outbreaks began in April. Tyson Foods produced 280 cases, while the Trevecca Center for Rehabilitation and Healing led to an outbreak of 102 confirmed cases, according to the health department.
Case clusters at three correctional facilities were identified in early September — 216 cases at the Debra Johnson Rehabilitation Center, 62 cases at the Lois DeBerry Special Needs Facility and 60 cases at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.
Other recent clusters include 23 cases within the Tennessee Titans organization, 19 cases from a school volleyball team and ten cases tied to a university sports team.
Clusters that have less than ten cases are not named due to patient privacy protocols, a health department spokesperson said.
Of the 150 clusters identified since March, the Metro Public Health Department’s lists showed 38 of the clusters were at longterm care facilities, 19 were in construction and 12 were from social gatherings.
Eight of the clusters were from daycares, seven were from bars and two were from churches.
