The Hyde County Health Department reported two more laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, June 28, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the county to 11.
Though Hyde County has only had one hospitalization and no deaths thus far, people should remain vigilant in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Businesses should practice proper protocols for keeping their staff and patrons safe, and the general public should practice the 3 Ws – wear a mask, wait 6 feet, and wash your hands.
Individuals who are noted as contacts to positive cases should adhere to the quarantine directives provided by the Health Department to prevent spread.
“Covid-19 is with us to stay. The best thing we can do as a society is put aside our political views and be neighborly to one another by doing our share to protect one another. It may save a life, or keep someone from hospitalization,” stated Health Director Luana Gibbs.
