Dare County reported 73 new COVID-19 cases today, setting a new single-day case record high—the day after reporting the previous record high of 52 COVID-19 cases.

Of the 73 new cases, 49 are Dare County residents and 24 are nonresidents, according to a 6 p.m. report on the Dare County Dept. of Health and Human Services’ dashboard.

The age breakdown of the 73 people who tested positive for COVID-19 is:

Age 17 and younger: nine

Ages 18 to 24: 10

Ages 25-49: 28

Ages 50-64: 20

Age 65 and older: six

We no longer are surprised by single-day case reports. We now wonder only when the December-January surge in cases will subside.
