NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Nashville Board of Health voted to no longer share personal information of COVID-19 patients with first responders.

Officials said the addresses of patients were being shared with emergency responders; so that they would be able to wear the appropriate PPE when responding to a COVID-19 positive home.

Members of the board made the vote Thursday. The state made the decision to stop sharing the information last month.
