PUTNAM COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Putnam County Fire Department issued a reminder to the public regarding COVID-19 test results on Monday.

The Putnam County Health Department communicates test results over the phone or through email upon the patient’s request, but the results would not be delivered via the post office.

Health officials have dedicated employees to call patients with their results.

Fire officials said posts are circulating on social media about people getting positive results back in the mail when they gave their information and left a line before getting tested due to wait times.

Officials said this is false. If you have any questions please call (931) 528-2531.
