CCHD COVID-19 Update #186 (October 28, 2020)

LENOIR, NC (October 28, 2020) — Here is the Caldwell County Health Department COVID-19 Update for Wednesday, October 28, 2020.

Forty-eight new COVID-19 cases have been reported today — 32 in the 28645 Zip code, eight in 28638, seven in 28630, and one in 28611. Four patients are under the age of 17; four are between 18 and 24; 12 are between 25 and 49; 18 are between 50 and 64; five are between 65 and 74; and one is over the age of 75.

To help slow the spread of COVID, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent recommends wearing a mask to make trick-or-treating safer. Specifically, the CDC says:

  • Make your cloth mask part of your costume. 
  • A costume mask is NOT a substitute for a cloth mask. 
  • Do NOT wear a costume mask over a cloth mask. It can make breathing more difficult. 
  • Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing.
