A third positive COVID-19 test associated with Dare County has occurred, but this person became symptomatic and was tested in another state, according to the Dare County Division of Public Health. He/she gave a Dare County address when tested, however.
The person is fully recovered and has not traveled to North Carolina since “the fall of 2019,” according to Dare County Emergency Management Bulletin 25, which was posted at 5:15 p.m. today.
This case will show up in the N.C. Dept. of Health and Human Services’ case count as Dare County’s first confirmed COVID-19 case because of the Dare County address he/she gave when tested. The other two people who tested positive in Dare County are physically present in the county, but they did not provide Dare County addresses.
The DCEM bulletin did not identify the state in which this third person is residing.
