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 take precautions and stay home if they are sick.

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. Starting Sept. 4, North Carolina has moved into Phase 2.5 of Gov. Roy Cooper’s plans to reopen. During this phase, the Stay-at-Home order has been lifted, but some restrictions are still in place for residents and businesses.
