Tennessee has reported its biggest one-day jump in confirmed coronavirus cases as the state continues to increase testing efforts.

The Tennessee Department of Health said there were at least 9,667 confirmed cases as of Sunday. The 478 new cases represents a 5.2% jump from Saturday’s total. The Tennessean reports it’s the highest number of new virus cases recorded in one day in the state.

But heck, we flattened the curve, and it is time for people to begin to get back to work...

Sure go get your dining out experience. Just, please, don't bring back covid-19 to your family and friends.
