As of 7 a.m. March 24, 2020:

Positive test results: 60

Positive inpatient cases:

50% of all positives have been under the age of 60 years old.​​

There have been 643  COVID-19 tests administered, with approximately one-third awaiting independent outside lab results.

Tanner has performed 12% of all tests performed in the state of Georgia to date.

The numbers reported by Tanner reflect cases that have been tested and/or treated within our health system, regardless of the county of patient origin. Since Tanner serves patients beyond our counties’ public health district, the numbers may not precisely match figures from DPH. In addition, DPH may receive figures from non-Tanner providers that aren’t reported through the health system.
