This afternoon’s data on the novel coronavirus in Halifax County continues to “indicate that strong attention needs to continue to be placed on mitigating this virus,” the health system said in its update.

“ … We cannot forget the importance of following the executive orders and recommendations. Please be sure to practice appropriate social distancing, handwashing, respiratory hygiene, and wearing facial coverings whenever you are out in public.”

The update says as of midnight Thursday, the health system is aware of 684 confirmed tests performed on residents. 

The latest breakdown of those tests now show the following:

115 positive cases which is eight more than reported Thursday; one related death; and 75 recoveries.
