Of the 23 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Dare County, nine are men and 14 are women; eight are between the ages of 25 and 49, and seven are age 65 or older; and 18 are Dare County residents, while five are non-residents, according to an expanded dashboard posted today by the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services.
Two Dare County residents continue to have an active COVID-19 status, with one being hospitalized and the other in home isolation, according to the dashboard.
Of the five non-residents who have tested positive, four have recovered, and the fifth has been transferred to his/her home county for isolation.
The latter appears to be the most recent laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 case in Dare County, case no. 23. [In a videotaped message posted today, Dr. Sheila Davies confirms that it is. The Beacon posted more details 6/3/20.]
A further breakdown of the ages of the people who have tested positive reveals that one is between the ages of 18 and 24, and seven are between the ages of 50 and 64.
