The number and density of reported COVID-19 cases vary by location in the state. Factors that may contribute to differences across the state include the age of people in the area, patterns of underlying health conditions, and unequal access to testing and healthcare. Differences in maintaining physical distancing recommendations and wearing masks may also affect local trends in COVID-19 cases and deaths. This graph depicts trends in COVID-19 cases and deaths for all ages starting in June 2020 in each county, compared to regional and statewide COVID-19 measures.
All data are preliminary and subject to change. Corrections and updates are made as cases are being investigated and reported. The most current data are available on the NC DHHS COVID-19 dashboard.
