Franklin, Tenn. – Today, June 29, the Williamson County Health Department (WCHD) completed 877 COVID-19 tests, making it the highest testing day since WCHD’s first day of drive-through testing on April 18th.
The Tennessee Department of Health also reported that Williamson County currently has 1,001 positive cases, with 498 of those being active cases.
“We would like to remind the community that if they are coming to receive a test, they should plan on self-isolating until their test results come back to prevent transmission if results are positive,” said Williamson County Health Director Cathy Montgomery, “With the number of tests increasing, we will naturally see the number of positive cases increase as well.”
WCHD is providing free COVID-19 drive-through testing at the Williamson County Agricultural Center at 4215 Long Lane, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Testing is provided to anyone regardless of symptoms or County of residency. No appointment is necessary. Test results are currently being provided within 4 to 7 days of testing through an online portal.
The testing site will be closed on July 3rd for Independence Day. Other COVID-19 testing sites in and around Williamson County are located at https://www.tn.gov/health/cedep/ncov/remote-assessment-sites.html
“It is critical for us to also remember the basics: wash your hands, wear a mask when in public, and physically distance (staying at least 6 feet away from others) whenever possible,” added Montgomery.
