Take Action Now, 296 New Cases and Three Additional Deaths

by Kristin Bunton | Nov 17, 2020
8,307 total COVID-19 cases in Cumberland County

The Department of Public Health reports 296 new COVID-19 cases and three additional deaths since the last report on Friday, Nov. 13. Cumberland County has 8,307 total COVID-19 cases since the onset of the pandemic.

Using case data as of Nov. 13, 7,139 cases are considered recovered. The total death toll in Cumberland from COVID-19 is 111.

Recovery data is reported using the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) estimated median time to recover of 14 days from the date of specimen collection for non-fatal COVID-19 cases who were not hospitalized, or if hospitalization status is unknown. The estimated median recovery time is 28 days from the date of specimen collection for hospitalized non-fatal COVID-19 cases. Estimates are used since patient-specific data on the actual time to resolution of all symptoms are not available for all COVID-19 cases in North Carolina.

Take Action Now to Slow the Spread
The entire state of North Carolina is seeing a steady increase in positive COVID-19 cases. We must take action now to protect our community. NCDHHS urges caution when gathering for Thanksgiving and other holiday celebrations.  

“This pandemic is causing stress and strain on our community,” said Health Director Dr. Jennifer Green. “We all are ready to spend time with friends and family to celebrate the holidays. Unfortunately, now is not that time.”

Limiting travel and gatherings with anyone outside a person’s household is the safest way to celebrate. For those who wish to travel or celebrate the holiday with people who do not live in their household, NCDHHS recommends a COVID-19 test three to four days in advance.

NCDHHS also released guidance for students to help them have safer holiday breaks. This guidance includes recommendations for quarantining and isolation, precautions and preventive measures students can take while on holiday break, and recommendations for steps to take when returning to campus after the holidays.
