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. To help prevent that from happening, Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford signed an updated stay-at-home order on April 15 that will remain in effect until April 30. Starting May 1, 11 of the county’s 12 municipalities and portions of Angier, Clayton and Durham that are located within Wake County, will follow Gov. Cooper’s Stay-at-Home order, which was lifted on May 22.
