The Halifax County Health Department released the following information on COVID-19 this afternoon:

As of midnight Tuesday, the department is aware of 1,656 confirmed tests performed on residents; 296 positive cases; four related deaths; and 224 recoveries.

The approximate number of current cases can be calculated by subtracting the recoveries from the positives reported since testing began.    

There are 16 tests pending and 1,344 negative results.

Health Director Bruce Robistow said in his afternoon update, “A sudden increase in positive cases has flattened our trend line. Please be reminded that we all need to continue to practice the three Ws and also continue to follow the governor’s executive orders. Let’s all work together to protect each other, wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash and disinfect hands frequently.”
