COVID-19 General Info

This outbreak began in early December 2019 and continues to expand in scope and magnitude. Chinese health officials have reported hundreds of cases in the city of Wuhan and severe illness has been reported, including deaths. Cases have also been identified in travelers from Wuhan to other parts of China and other countries, including the United States. We expect more cases to be confirmed. Person-to-person spread is occurring though it’s unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people at this time.

As questions and concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19) increase across North Carolina, The North Carolina Division of Public Health would like the public to use the Coronavirus Helpline. The phone number to the helpline is 1-866-462-3821.
