As of mid-day on Monday, there were 11 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 among Davie residents.

All but three are believed to have caught the virus through community spread, according to Suzanne Wright, Davie Health & Human Services director. Two of those patients are in the hospital. One has recovered from the virus.

“These numbers do not reflect the extend of COVID-19 in Davie County,” she said.

Of the 11 cases in Davie, seven are among people age 65 or older; three age 50-64; and one age 25-49.

“Two of the individuals with COVID-19 in Davie County have exhibited no symptoms,” Wright said. “This emphasizes the need for all to stay home and follow control measures as you will likely interact with people carrying the virus without you or them even knowing it.”

She said there are likely more in Davie County with the virus than have been confirmed via lab tests.

All of those with confirmed COVID-19 are in isolation in their homes (other than the hospitalizations), and are in contact with health department officials as to when they can leave isolation.

“To protect this community, stay home, socially distance, wash hands, don’t touch your face, and act like everyone has COVID-19 as not everyone shows symptoms.”
