COVID-19 Cases in Wake County

North Carolina identified its first COVID-19-positive case, a resident of Wake County, in early March. Every day since then, the number of positive cases in our community has increased.

While our dashboard is updated regularly, it doesn’t tell the complete story of how widespread coronavirus is in Wake County. The state has confirmed the virus could be anywhere in our community – and that’s why it’s so important for residents to stay at home.

Protecting our Healthcare System

As the number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to rise, so are concerns that the virus could overwhelm our local healthcare system. To help prevent that from happening, Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford signed a proclamation that put a stay-at-home order in effect on Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m.

Read the full proclamation here.
