Three new COVID-19 cases have been added to the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services’ dashboard since yesterday, all of them young non-residents who have been transferred to their home counties for isolation.
Two of the three non-residents who tested positive locally for COVID-19 are male, and two of them are 17 years old, according to today’s dashboard data. One is between the ages of 18 and 24.
The total number of cases in Dare County is now 29.
Seven people tested positive for COVID-19 in Dare County during the past week. Of the seven, five were non-residents. Four were female, and three were male.
Dr. Sheila Davies, director of the DCDHHS, announced last week that a third local testing event would be held soon and would include antibody testing, as well as testing for COVID-19 infection.
Dr. Davies will post a videotaped message update about COVID-19 in Dare on Tuesday.
