Hyde County COVID-19 cases on the rise

News

HYDE County, N.C. (WNCT) –

Hyde County has now reported eleven laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Of the eleven, four people currently have the virus, with seven recovered cases.

Hyde County Health Department Director Luana Gibbs says the county hasn’t had any virus deaths, but she’s worried about people practicing proper protocol.

“I’m afraid that people might not be following the guidelines as much as they should,” said Gibbs.

“It would really be great if employees of businesses would screen their employees with temperature checks.”

Gibbs says the county encourages residents to practice the ‘3Ws’ – wear a mask, wash hands, wait six feet apart.
