Bulletin #15
March 25, 2020
11:00 a.m.

“The individual has been self-isolating since being tested and doing well,” according to Dr. Sheila Davies, Director of the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services. It is believed the individual acquired the virus through travel or direct contact. This is not a case of community spread.

This case will not show up as a Dare County case with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services because a Dare County address was not used when the individual was tested.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services staff is conducting an active investigation into this individual’s activity. Anyone who is determined to have had direct contact with the individual will be contacted.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services will not release further details about the individual to protect their privacy.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services will continue to update our community regularly about COVID-19 in Dare County. Strong coordination between Dare County Department of Health & Human Services, North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services, Dare County Emergency Management, Outer Banks Hospital, and local healthcare providers is occurring to identify and manage any person who develops signs or symptoms consistent with COVID-19. 

General information about COVID-19 in North Carolina can be found here or call the NC COVID-19 hotline at 866.462.3821. For more information about COVID-19 in Dare County, visit or call 252.475.5008.
