Child care facilities and schools in NC are points of interest on this COVID-19 dashboard because some COVID-19 clusters in NC have been linked to these types of facilities. These facilities represent environments that could have elevated risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission in the absence of appropriate control measures because they have enclosed spaces that enable long duration of exposure, can be crowded, and may contain a high number of asymptomatic children who can contribute to transmission.
The map below shows the location of child care facilities, schools, and laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths for all ages by county and zip code. Click on a county to view zip code level data on COVID-19.
