FRIDAY, JANUARY 29, 2021

7: 00 p.m. - Lewisville Elementary will move to remote learning after 11 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Information provided by Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools  

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools and school administration at Lewisville Elementary have been informed of at least 11 self-reported cases of COVID-19 in individuals associated with Lewisville Elementary.  

Students will move to remote learning and the school building will be closed to all students and staff until February 15.  **It is important to note that February 15 through the 19 is scheduled to be a districtwide remote learning week, so Lewisville students will not return to in-person learning until February 22.

School officials are working closely with the local health department to verify and track each case. While it is believed that many of these cases are a result of community and/or family member exposure, the district is exercising extreme caution in making sure students and staff are not unintentionally exposed.

Our top priority is for the health and safety of each student and staff member. WS/FCS will move forward with efforts to ensure proper cleaning takes place and contact tracing continues to identify any potential exposures. The process to disinfect and sanitize the impacted areas in the school will begin immediately.

6:30 p.m. - The NCDHHS has issued new COVID-19 numbers for nursing homes, rehab facilities for across the Piedmont Triad. 

In the last 2 weeks, there have been 15 new outbreaks confirmed.

One of which is at the Guilford County Juvenile Detention Center (16 total cases).

THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 2021

1:00 p.m. -- Guilford County Health Department has confirmed its first case of the UK COVID-19 variant. The case was detected in a random test sample by the CDC. Contact tracers are working to get in touch with those who were in close contact with the infected person, who is in isolation. 

10 a.m. -- Dr. Christopher Ohl, infectious disease expert for Wake Forest Baptist Health, is giving an update on COVID-19 in the Triad and the push to ramp up vaccines for adults 65 and older. 

Key updates:

  • North Carolina's stay-at-home order was extended to February 28.
  • State health officials say COVID numbers are dropping, but our numbers are still too high to loosen restrictions.
  • The moratorium on evictions and to-go alcohol sales have been extended to March 31.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 2021

2 p.m. -- Gov. Roy Cooper extends stay-at-home order through February 28.

  • Cooper said COVID numbers are stabilizing, which is encouraging. However, he said COVID metrics are still high and the virus is still raging through our communities. 
  • 99.8 percent of the first vaccine doses received from the federal government have been allocated across the state. The task force said this puts North Carolina in good standing to receive more vaccines from the federal government. 
  • Cooper said the HOPE program has paid more than $130 million to help keep struggling North Carolinians in their rental homes and utilities running. 
  • NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen delivered COVID trends. We're past the spike from the winter holidays, and our numbers are beginning to stabilizing, but they still remain very high. 
  • Cooper extended the modified stay-at-home order through February 28. The statewide 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew will remain in place. 
  • Cooper also extended the evictions moratorium. 
  • Cooper also extended the order that allows restaurants and bars to do to-go alcohol sales through March 31. 

12 p.m. -- Hospitalizations and percent positive have been stable in North Carolina this week, and daily cases are some of the lowest in a month. 

Cone Health hospitalizations are also on the decline, but researchers moved up Cone's projected overage date to Feb. 6 (initially Jan. 19, then Feb. 11). 

It appears testing demand has slowed down the last few days, so turnaround time is speeding up. 

STATEWIDE DATA FOR WEDNESDAY

  • NEWLY-CONFIRMED CASES: 5,587
  • PERCENT POSITIVE: 11.1%
  • TOTAL CASES (INCLUDING RECOVERIES): 744,010
  • TOTAL DEATHS: 8,915
  • TESTING TURNAROUND TIME: 1.7 DAYS

Key updates: 

  • Daily COVID cases on Tuesday fell below 4,000 for the first time in nearly a month. 
  • There are currently more than 5,100 active cases in Guilford County. 
  • Cone Health is caring for 215 COVID patients - far fewer than the nearly 270 patients two weeks ago. Cone's ICU is three-quarters full. 
  • NC just launched the Find My Group tool, so you can find out when you are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

FACTS NOT FEAR

Remember facts, not fear when talking about the coronavirus. You should take the safety measures recommended by health leaders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Abide by the three W's. That means wearing a mask, washing your hands, and waiting at least six feet from another person. You also want to avoid touching your face and make sure to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw it away.

WHERE YOU GET INFORMATION ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS IS IMPORTANT

It is important to make sure the information you are getting about the coronavirus is coming directly from reliable sources like the CDC and NCDHHS. Be careful not to spread misinformation about coronavirus on social media.

For more information visit the CDC OR NCDHHS website.

NC CORONAVIRUS HOTLINE 

The state also has a special hotline set up where you can call 866-462-3821 for more information on the coronavirus. You can also submit questions online at ncpoisoncontrol.org or select chat to talk with someone about the virus.
