Hyde reports two additional COVID-19 cases
Hyde County Health Department reported two additional laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, June 28. Eleven total cases have been reported; three of those have recovered.
“Though the county has been very fortunate to have only had one hospitalization so far, and no deaths, people should remain vigilant in prevention of spread and control measures,” stated a Hyde Health press release. “Businesses should practice proper protocols for keeping their staff and patrons safe, the general public, when out and about, should practice the 3 Ws – wear a mask, wait 6 feet, and wash your hands. Individuals who are noted as contacts to positive cases should adhere to the quarantine directives provided by the Health Department to prevent spread.”
“Covid-19 is with us to stay. The best thing we can do as a society, is put aside our political views and be neighborly to one another by doing our share to protect one another. It may save a life, or keep someone from hospitalization,” stated health director Luana Gibbs.
