Dare County reported its second-highest daily total of new COVID-19 cases on July 9 — with 15 people testing positive. That brings the total number of cases in the county to 171 since the outset of the pandemic.
In a departure from many recent cases here, a small fraction of today’s cases, only three of them, involved people under the age of 25. Six of the individuals were between the ages of 25-49, three were between 50-64 and three were 65 or older.
Ten of the new cases affected residents of Dare County while five involved non-residents. All of the residents are reported to isolating at home. Three of the non-residents are also isolating in Dare County while two of them have been transferred to their home counties.
The Dare County Department of Health and Human Services also reported on July 9 that 15 residents and six non-residents who had previously been classified with active cases and were isolating in Dare County are now considered recovered.
