The Tennessee Department of Health says if a total number drops it is because a case was re-classified as another illness instead of COVID-19.

HOSPITALIZED NUMBER – Hospitalization data reflect the cumulative (total) number of cases of residents in a county that were ever hospitalized AT ANY HOSPITAL from COVID-19. It does not reflect the number of people currently hospitalized in each county.
