COVID-19 community transmission high in much of eastern North Carolina
The latest numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that community level transmission of COVID-19 is high in the majority of eastern North Carolina.
To prevent getting sick, scientists suggest people in the region wear a high-quality mask, consider avoiding any non-essential indoor activities where a lot of people will gather, and stay up-to-date with vaccinations and boosters.
They are also suggesting people avoid contact with others who have suspected or confirmed COVID-19.
The exception is Bertie County, where community level transmission is medium.
