CASE INFORMATION

Total cases include all laboratory confirmed cases since March 19, 2020. Many of these cases have now recovered and are no longer considered active. The following represents Pitt County's current active and estimated recovered** cases.

  • CURRENT ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN PITT COUNTY:  165 (updated 07/12/2021 at 12:25 pm)
  • CASES ESTIMATED RECOVERED**:  20,394 (updated 07/12/2021 at 12:25 pm)
  • DEATHS = 96
  • 165 CURRENT ACTIVE CASES + 20,394 CASES ESTIMATED RECOVERED + 96 DEATHS = 20,655 TOTAL CASES (updated 07/12/2021 at 12:25 pm)

**RECOVERED means more than simply “feeling better” – there are many factors that go into determining what a full recovery is. Since there is not yet a universal standard on what it means to be “fully recovered” from COVID-19, we are only reporting “estimated and assumed” recoveries.  Recovered estimates are manually calculated and only updated periodically, as time and data permit.  Recovery estimation is calculated by taking the date a person was tested and adding 15 days (the 14 days CDC recommends waiting after infection +1). This calculation will overestimate recovery for some (if they actually recovered in less than 14 days) and underestimate it for others (if in some cases it took more than 15 days to recover). Note: Deaths are not included in the recovered count.

INFORMATION ON CLOTH FACE COVERINGS

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to study the spread and effects of COVID-19 across the United States, and has provided updated guidance on using cloth face coverings
  • It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus.  CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.  Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

COVID-19 Know Your Ws Graphic

KNOW YOUR W’S 

The NC Department of Health and Human Services is asking people to remember these three things as we stay strong and continue to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.

If you leave home, practice your Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash

  • Wear a cloth face covering if you will be with other people 
  • Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.

These actions can protect our families and neighbors as the state takes a cautious step forward to ease restrictions while the virus is still circulating.
