New COVID-19 County Alert System The NC Department of Health and Human Services is pleased to start sharing important information. North Carolina is currently experiencing high levels of community transmission of COVID-19 statewide, but the virus is impacting some counties particularly hard.
The state has established a new COVID-19 County Alert System to help North Carolinians understand how their county is faring and take actions to slow the spread of the virus. Under the system, 53 counties are experiencing critical or substantial community spread, with the remaining counties seeing significant community spread.
