    North Carolina Identifies First Case of COVID-19

    Raleigh
    Mar 3, 2020
    A North Carolina person has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The test, conducted by the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health, is presumptively positive and will be confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab. The person is doing well and is in isolation at home.

    “I know that people are worried about this virus, and I want to assure North Carolinians our state is prepared,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “Our task force and state agencies are working closely with local health departments, health care providers and others to quickly identify and respond to cases that might occur.”

    The North Carolina person from Wake County traveled to the state of Washington and was exposed at a long-term care facility where there is currently a COVID-19 outbreak. Local health department officials are identifying close contacts to monitor symptoms and contain spread. To protect individual privacy, no further information will be released.

    While awaiting confirmation of results from the CDC, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will treat presumptive cases as positive and follow CDC guidelines to protect public health and limit the spread of infection.

    Today’s announcement represents an isolated case, and COVID-19 is currently not widespread in North Carolina. Because COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets, North Carolinians should take the same measures that healthcare providers recommend annually to prevent the spread of the flu and other viruses, including washing your hands, avoiding touching your face and covering coughs and sneezes.

    Last month, Governor Cooper established the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Task Force to support the state’s ongoing effort to monitor, prepare for and respond to COVID-19. State actions include:
    • Aggressively pursuing containment strategy of rapid identification, testing and contact tracing.
    • Engaging in daily collaboration with federal, state and local partners to ensure rapid response.
    • Mobilizing resources for our providers, local public health system, local emergency management and others.
    • Developing detailed response plans for multiple sectors for a range of scenarios.
    • Developing guidance for planning for multiple sectors for a range of scenarios.
    • Preparing health care providers and facilities to streamline and standardize response activities.
    • Activating a Joint Information Center to provide timely information.
    • Testing patients in the NC State Laboratory of Public Health.
    • Leading regular calls with local health departments, hospitals and local emergency management.
    • Providing guidelines for health care providers, child care, employers, schools, colleges and universities and others.
    • Monitoring residents who have returned from China through local health departments.
    • Staffing a COVID-19 phone line to answer urgent questions from the public.
    • Maintaining an up-to-date website with information about COVID-19 disease, risk and guidance.

    It is important to make sure the information you are getting about COVID-19 is coming directly from reliable sources like the CDC and NCDHHS.

    For more information, please visit the CDC’s website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus and NCDHHS’ website at www.ncdhhs.gov/coronavirus, which will also include future positive COVID-19 test results in North Carolina.

    Governor Cooper and the coronavirus task force will hold a media briefing on COVID-19 at the Joint Force Headquarters at 3:30 p.m. today.

    The briefing can be livestreamed at https://www.ncdps.gov/storm-update.

            RALEIGH, N.C. (WBTV) - Five more people in North Carolina have tested positive Monday for COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), bringing the total number of positive cases in the state to seven.

            All five of these people traveled to Boston in late February to attend a BioGen conference. Several cases of COVID-19 across the country have been tied to the conference.

            These cases are based in Wake County, but are not related to the Wake County individual who tested positive last week. All are in isolation at their respective homes.

            The tests, conducted by the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health, are presumptively positive and will be confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lab...

              NCDHHS Announces Three Additional Cases of COVID-19 in North Carolina

              Raleigh


              Mar 12, 2020



              Two people from Forsyth County and a person from Johnston County have tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total of positive cases in North Carolina to 12, including a Durham resident who tested positive in another state. The tests, conducted by the North Carolina State Laboratory of Public Health, are presumptively positive and will be confirmed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lab. All are doing well and are in isolation at home. While awaiting confirmation of results from the CDC, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will treat presumptive cases as positive and follow CDC guidelines to protect public health and limit the spread of infection.

              The Forsyth and Johnson County local health departments will work to identify close contacts. The couple from Forsyth was on a cruise where other travelers have tested positive. The exposure for the person from Johnston County is being investigated. The CDC defines close contact as being within approximately 6 feet of a person with an infection with COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time of 10 minutes or longer. Based on information provided by the individual, county health officials will assess risks of exposure, determine which if any additional measures are needed such as temperature and symptom checks, quarantine and/or testing.

              Because COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets, North Carolinians should take the same measures that health care providers recommend to prevent the spread of the flu and other viruses, including washing your hands, avoiding touching your face, staying home if you are sick and covering coughs and sneezes with your elbow.

              It is important to make sure the information you are getting about COVID-19 is coming directly from reliable sources like the CDC and NCDHHS. For more information, please visit the CDC’s website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus and NCDHHS’ website at www.ncdhhs.gov/coronavirus, which will also include future positive COVID-19 test results in North Carolina.

              The NC Department of Health and Human Services will no longer issue press releases announcing new positive test results for COVID-19. Case counts will be updated daily on online at www.ncdhhs.gov/coronavirus.
