Two Dare County residents have been hospitalized with COVID-19, according to a late report today on the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services dashboard.
The man and woman, who are age 65 or older, are among 17 new COVID-19 cases reported by the DCDHHS. Of the 17, 12 are Dare County residents. Five of the other 10 are between the ages of 25 to 49, and five are age 50-to-64.
These two hospitalizations bring the number of Dare County residents hospitalized outside of the area for COVID-19 to 10.
This wraps up our last COVID-19 update of 2020. We wish swift and uneventful recoveries to the 115 local people who currently have active cases.
