NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee has confirmed its first case of the new coronavirus, state Department of Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey said Thursday.

The patient is an adult male living in Williamson County who recently traveled out of the state. The patient is isolated at home and his household contacts are being evaluated, Piercy said.

The Health Department is compiling a list of other people who may have been in contact with him and reaching out to them for testing. Piercy said the threat to the general public in Tennessee from the virus is low. She encouraged people to take common sense precautions like hand washing.
