At this time, the risk to the general public in North Carolina is LOW.
While Mecklenburg County Public Health (MCPH) considers novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a very serious public health threat, the current immediate health risk to the general public in North Carolina is considered low at this time. The total number of COVID -19 cases in North Carolina is available here on the State's website.
The latest update on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is updated guidance asking older adults and people with severe medical conditions including heart, lung or kidney disease to "stay home as much possible." People in those categories are also advised to avoid crowds and travel. Two new presumptive cases have also been reported in South Carolina but not yet confirmed by the CDC.
For weeks, MCPH has been preparing for potential COVID-19 cases by working with and following guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). MCPH also continues to work locally with other health departments, health care providers and community partners to closely monitor COVID-19 and review and update existing emergency response plans.
If you have additional questions please review the information on this webpage first. Additional resources for preventing spread in communities, for providers, for employers/businesses, is available here. If If you believe you are at increased risk of COVID-19 infection due to travel or potential exposure and you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath please call your health provider and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.

MCPH recommends the public take the following steps to prevent the spread of ALL respiratory illnesses.
- Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.

- If you feel sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing and you have had close contact with someone who is suspected to have Novel Coronavirus within 14 days of when your symptoms started, you should call ahead to a healthcare professional and mention your close contact and their recent travel.
- Your healthcare professional will work with your local and state’s public health department and the CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
- Healthcare providers should immediately contact MCPH Communicable Disease On-Call number if any individual meets or potentially meets criteria for COVID-19 testing and/or for questions about testing, current guidelines, public health messaging, and any other concerns.
