6/1/20: POSITIVE COVID-19 TESTS IN DARE COUNTY INCREASE TO 23; NEW CASE IS ‘ACTIVE.’

Coronavirus-CDC-678x381 

A new positive test result has been added to the Dare County COVID-19 dashboard, bringing the total number of positive test results to 23.

The new case is “active,” according to the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services’ dashboard, which was updated today.

The DCDHHS has not yet issued a bulletin explaining the circumstances of the person who tested positive.

The DCDHHS also has not followed up on the results of the undetermined nine tests remaining from the 178 tests done in last week’s drive-thru event in Kill Devil Hills.

  1. Thank you for staying on top of these numbers. I had been waiting a follow up on those missing test results and nothing posted. We are in the middle of opening up restaurants along with tourists, and we need solid information. We can deal with the known, the unknown just breeds either a false sense of safety or incorrect speculation. This leaves people like me questioning the validity of any information and subsequent decisions based on inaccurate or incomplete information. You do great work and a service to our community.

  2. Thank you so much, Dana. I’m very interested to know about those 9 test results, too. Without testing, we cannot assess the spread of COVID-19 on the Outer Banks . . . and we’ve only just started testing. All the best, Ann
