Apr 07, 2020

Cumberland County has 66 positive COVID-19 cases, according to Health Director Dr. Jennifer Green. The county received notification of 10 new cases on Tuesday. The average age for all cases is 49 years old.

The Health Department found that in many cases, patients had traveled, either within or outside the county.

“Many in our community will be observing Passover and Easter this week. This is typically a time when families and neighbors gather to celebrate. We strongly encourage individuals to stay home and use technology to engage in religious services. We’re seeing cases within extended families that are visiting family members outside of their immediate household. We want you to enjoy celebrations with family members outside of your household, but to do so over the phone or with video conferencing,” Green said.

The county has created a COVID-19 Dashboard that includes a zip code map, as well as gender and racial information based on available data.  The dashboard is posted on the County’s website at co.cumberland.nc.us/COVID19 and on the Cumberland County Coronavirus Response page.
