Three patients are under the age of 17; two patients are between 18 and 24; seven are between 25 and 49; five patients are between 50 and 64; and two patients are between 65 and 74.
Another case was reported in the outbreak at the Lenoir Health Care. The outbreak now stands at four — three employees and one resident. The Health Department also continues to follow outbreaks at Caldwell Correctional Facility and Hickory Falls Rehabilitation and Healthcare.
Hospitalized – The number of hospitalized patients is not cumulative. It is the number of patients from Caldwell County currently hospitalized, regardless of what county they are hospitalized in.
“Also, if you follow the state numbers, you will notice we are reporting fewer cases than the state shows for our county. We report cases once the health care provider who conducted the test shares pertinent patient information and confirms test results. Until we receive that information, we do not add cases to our log.
Remember, we only report cases for patients who live in Caldwell County. Cases are counted by patient, not the number of times the patient tests positive.” Caldwell County Health Department
