COVID-19 UPDATE
Nash County numbers continue to increase

Nash County continues to see a surge in confirmed positive cases of COVID-19.

As of Tuesday evening, July 28th, there were 927 positive cases being reported, an increase of 165 cases since last Tuesday, July 21st.

The county also reported its 11th death associated with COVID-19 this week.

The Nash County Health Department reported that the male patient, in his early 70's, died on July 25, 2020. He reportedly had underlying health conditions.

"We send our sincere condolences to the family and friends of this individual," said Nash County Deputy Health Director Trey Wright. "At Nash County Health Department, we are in the business of helping our community. One thing you can do to help others is by practicing the 3 W's."

Wright said practicing the three W's is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

"It is also imperative for those testing positive to stay at home until your isolation time has been completed," Wright added.

Health Director Bill Hill said the county continues to stay busy with testing and the number of positive cases continues to increase.

"We are looking at a surge again," Hill said.

Hill said hospitalizations are also going back up, with 22 hospitalized as of Tuesday, July 28th.

Hill said the virus was especially dangers for the elderly.

"Age is still primary a high risk factor, one that you can't help but one you can be especially vigilant with," he said.
