The Department of Public Health has been notified of 70 positive COVID-19 cases and four deaths since Monday, June 22. Cumberland County's case count is now 1,121, with 36 deaths.

Two of the COVID-19 related deaths were residents of the N.C. State Veterans Home where there is an active outbreak. The patients were in their 70s and 80s. The other two people who died had underlying health conditions and were in their 80s and 60s.

Additional Demographic Data Available

An outbreak in a congregate living setting is defined as two or more cases and a cluster in a childcare setting is defined as a minimum of five cases.

Phase 2 Extended, Face Coverings Required
Governor Roy Cooper has extended the Safer at Home Phase 2 for three more weeks and added a statewide requirement for face coverings.

Growing evidence shows that cloth face coverings, when worn consistently, can decrease the spread of COVID-19, especially among people who are not yet showing symptoms of the virus.

“It’s important to wear face coverings properly to be effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Cloth masks should cover the mouth and nose and fit securely on the side,” Health Director Dr. Jennifer Green said.
