The total number of positive COVID-19 cases since March of last year in Halifax County is now at 5,710, the health department reported today.

This comes after 19 new positive cases were added since last week’s report.

“Our number of positives did go up,” Health Director Bruce Robistow said. “We’ve been averaging one a day and now we have 19 in a week.”

North Carolina is one of the states in the country which is showing an uptick in positive cases, he said. “The Delta variant continues to spread. It is affecting the younger population more dramatically. I’m concerned we might see another spike in positive cases.”

Robistow said he encourages those who have not yet been vaccinated to consider doing so.

While recoveries and current cases were not included in today’s report, the health director said data Monday showed 29 active cases and 5,562 recoveries. There have been 115 related deaths.
