NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Metro Public Health Department has released an updated list of identified COVID-19 clusters.
Clusters refer to cases linked to a specific time and place, identified through an investigation by MPHD.
The updated list details many of the 156 coronavirus case clusters identified since the pandemic began in March.
Since the beginning of October, the health department identified two clusters — 14 cases were traced back to Miss Kelli’s, a karaoke bar in Printers Alley, and 70 cases are now tied to the women’s campus of the Nashville Rescue Mission.
Some of the earliest clusters, identified in March, included Vanderbilt University parties, which accounted for 49 cases, and an event at Clementine Hall that produced 23 cases. A religious retreat followed, leading to 18 cases.
Some of the bigger outbreaks began in April, with Tyson Foods producing 280 cases, while the Trevecca Center for Rehabilitation and Healing led to an outbreak of 102 confirmed cases, according to the health department.
The health department identified case clusters at three correctional facilities 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, ten cases tied to a university sports team, and 13 cases from a middle-school teen party.
Clusters that have less than ten cases are not named due to patient privacy protocols, a health department spokesperson said.
Of the 156 clusters identified since March, the Metro Public Health Department’s lists showed 39 of the clusters were at long-term care facilities, 19 were in construction, and 12 were from social gatherings.
Seven of the clusters were from daycares and bars, and two were from churches.
