We wanted to call it a day, but then we checked the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services dashboard just one more time and, curses . . . At 5:30 p.m., it reported 37–yes, 37–new COVID-19 cases, 28 of them Dare County residents, including one man age 65 or older, who was hospitalized.

We have a sneaking suspicion that tomorrow’s post-Thanksgiving weekend report will surpass today’s. After all, COVID-19 has an average incubation period of four to five days.

Here is the age breakdown of the 37 people who tested positive in Dare County for the coronavirus disease:

Age 17 and younger: two

Age 18 to 24: two

Age 25 to 49: 15

Age 50 to 64: 13

Age 65 and older: five

Have a good night.

THE BEACON, 12/2/20
