Eight more people have tested positive locally for COVID-19, according to today’s Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services dashboard. All eight are between the ages of 18 and 24, an age group that accounts for 36 percent of the 121 COVID-19 case total in Dare County.

Five of the eight people are Dare County residents, of whom one is in the hospital and the others are in home isolation.

All three of the non-residents are isolating in Dare County.

Four of the people are women, and four are men.

Single-day case reports statewide today and during the past two days have been high—today’s count was 1,629, and yesterday’s was 1,843—but the positive-test rate among the tests completed has declined to between 5 and 5.7 percent, which is encouraging.
