Williamson County has seen nearly 50 new reported cases of COVID-19 since last Friday. 

After Friday's tally saw the county at 595 overall cases, the state reported Tuesday that cases had risen to 648, a 53-case jump. 

There was a 18-person bump in cases for the county from Monday (630) to Tuesday (648), the biggest such increase for WillCo in two months. 

The daily average from June 2-9 of cases in Williamson was 11.5 new cases a day (81 new cases in the stretch), compared to the time spans of May 26-June 2 (5.7, 40 overall that week) and May 16-26 (5, 35 overall). 

If this new trend continued for 30 days, there would be 540 new cases for the county. 

There have been 11 deaths in the county thus far, and 11,055 negative tests conducted.
