The county is home to ‘patient zero’ — the man who became the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in Tennessee.

“For those of you who don’t know, I was patient zero in Tennessee,” Chris Baumgartner told WNCT 9. “That’s right, I’m the 44-year-old dad in Williamson County, who has a son at BGA, works for Biogen, and has 2 families ‘contacts’ living in my household … who really needs HIPAA anyway, right?”
