The total of active cases has not been this high since late August, according to the TDH. Cases have seen a slow rise over the past several weeks, followed by a sharp rise in the past week.
Since Nov. 2, the number of active cases has risen by 35%, up from 826 active cases. The county has added an additional 152 cases since Nov. 8, according to the TDH.
Statewide, TDH has reported a cumulative 278,770 cases since the pandemic began in March. That total includes 5,919 new cases and 15 new deaths reported since Nov. 8. Current hospitalizations statewide total more than 1,500.
As cases rise in the county, Williamson County Schools has moved to close some schools for the week, opting to have students learn remotely. This week, Franklin, Brentwood and Nolensville high schools will be remote.
WCS Board Member Rick Wimberly said in a social media post that the district is watching these cases closely and the quarantines are expected to be discussed during the board's Nov. 11 work session.
"The first couple days of this week are going to be very telling about our isolation/quarantine issues at [WCS] high schools," Wimberly said in a social media post. "We may need to make some changes. The WCS school board will receive a report from staff at [Thursday's] work session. Meantime, we all need to be careful."
Officials are urging residents to continue following safety guidelines to reduce the spread of the virus, including frequent hand-washing and practicing social distancing.
The county remains under a mask mandate until at least Dec. 29.
