North Carolina switched from reporting current outbreak data to cumulative data on June 25, 2020. Interpret North Carolina’s historic data with caution.

When reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.

North Carolina reports long-term care data for Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities, which includes Adult Care Homes, Family Care Homes, Multi-unit Assisted Housing, Group Homes, and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID). North Carolina reports facility-level data.

North Carolina reports cumulative and current outbreak data. Data on residents and staff are reported separately. Data is updated twice a week: Tuesdays and Fridays.

North Carolina defines an outbreak as two or more laboratory-confirmed cases. An outbreak is considered over after 28 days without evidence of transmission. Once an outbreak ends, another outbreak can occur at the same facility. North Carolina does not report data for facilities with less than 10 residents.
