NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A Madison long-term care facility is the latest location to experience an outbreak of COVID-19 in Nashville and Davidson County.

The Metro Public Health Department released an updated list Friday morning, detailing many of the 160 coronavirus case clusters identified since the pandemic began in March.

Since the beginning of October, five clusters have been identified by the health department, including 12 cases traced back to Maybelle Carter Living, a long-term care facility in Madison.

The four previously identified clusters from October include 70 cases tied to the women’s campus of the Nashville Rescue Mission, 18 cases connected to Iron Tribe Belmont, 15 cases linked to Miss Kelli’s and 12 cases contracted at Link Systems Electric.

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 156 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 160 clusters identified since March, the Metro Public Health Department’s lists showed 41 of the clusters were at long-term care facilities, 19 were in construction and 13 were from social gatherings.

Seven of the clusters were from daycares, seven were from bars and two were from churches.
