Plan for Gradual Lifting of Restrictions on Entry to Dare County To Be Announced Tuesday, April 21
With careful consideration of the science, trends, data and resource availability, the Dare County Control Group has asked staff to prepare a plan to address the lifting of restrictions on entry to Dare County while ensuring the safety of our community. Dare County’s plan will be released on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.
State Cases of COVID-19
In North Carolina, there are currently 6,764 cases of COVID-19 in 93 counties. There have been 179 fatalities in NC associated with COVID-19. Currently, the state is reporting 373 hospitalizations across the state from COVID-19 illness. 
County’s Positive Test Results Remains at 15 
The number of positive COVID-19 test results remains at 15. Fourteen have recovered/or are asymptomatically cleared (meaning they are seven days post testing with no symptoms) and one died. 
Dare County health care providers are testing individuals who they believe are in need of COVID-19 testing and meet the NC DHHS guidelines for testing which include: fever of 100.4 or higher, cough and respiratory illness. The return time for test results has dramatically improved since testing started in late February. We now are receiving results back within 24 - 72 hours. While the test results we have been receiving over the past week have all been negative, this does not mean that the COVID-19 virus is not in our community. Remember, the CDC reports that approximately 25% of patients with COVID-19 do not show symptoms. We all must continue to do our part to keep our community healthy.
