On May 13th, 2020 North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services created a definition of recovery that indicated an individual was considered recovered 14 days after they were tested. With that definition NCDDHS also indicated that counties no longer had to continue following COVID-19 cases beyond the 14 day time period. Davie County has been going above and beyond this requirement to ensure residents were no longer sick before removing them from the sick list. Now due to the sheer number of cases and work involved with pandemic response, staff will be adopting the blanket “recovery” guidance from North Carolina Health and Human Services. The drop in sick cases were a result of this newly adopted process and guidance from NCDHHS.
Active cases will continue to be reported. The definition of active cases is those who are within 14 days from the date they received testing.
There are 54 active cases of COVID-19 in Davie County, one of which is currently hospitalized. Overall there have been 190 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Davie County. In North Carolina there are 58,818 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,303 deaths.
