Four positive COVID-19 cases were reported today in Caldwell County. Three patients live in the 28645 and one in 28630. Several cases have come from outbreaks in surrounding counties, because COVID-19 cases are reported where people live, not where they work.

Chick-fil-A at Smith Crossroads and their patrons who purchased a #1 Meal between April 16 and April 30 during the Buy A Meal, Give A Mask campaign donated 5,439 masks to Caldwell County for delivery to healthcare professionals and other responders on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
