NC Department Of Health And Human Services Guidelines

  1. Social distancing: Avoid public spaces with large gathering of people and limit venturing out in to public unless absolutely unavoidable. When venturing out in to public, limit touching anything and maintain at the very minimum of 6 feet distance from others.
  2. Wash hands with warm water and antibacterial soap for 30 seconds many times a day. Clean and disinfect your home, car, and office surroundings.
  3. Do not touch your mouth, nose, or eyes.
  4. Wear a cloth mask anytime you are in public. But, do not let this be a false sense of security and letting your guard down on social distancing and hand washing. Wearing a cloth mask in public should ONLY be on absolutely necessary visits to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and other needs.
  5. Sneeze and cough in to a tissue or sleeve of your shirt. Discard tissue immediately and wash your hands.
  6. Do not leave your home if you are sick and wear a face mask. If you must see a Doctor or other professional, call ahead.

  2. Obesity is now a very significant risk factor to complications when being medically treated after infection.
  3. Strictly limit who comes in to your home.
  4. Ask people visiting you to immediately wash their hands and wear a mask.
  5. Limit distance to anyone in your home to a minimum of 6 feet.
  6. For family members of the elderly and medically compromised, please consider doing all shopping and outside tasks for your loved one’s at home. When delivering supplies, limit your interaction (6 feet) and disinfect anything brought in to the home.
  7. For unavoidable medical visits, or other visits outside the home, wear a face mask and avoid touching anything.

Psychological Considerations

  1. I live in a NC County where there are no confirmed cases, I am young, not medically compromised, and very healthy. Do I need to take precautions? YES. While you may be young and healthy, if you get this virus you could then become a spreader to those in the community who are medically compromised and elderly.
  2. What does community acquired mean? Community acquired means that person-to-person transmission is happening locally at the county and city level versus acquiring COVID-19 by travel to China, other region, or other state.

  1. How is this website able to publish live updates by county several times a day but the state DHHS website only updates once daily?

    1. Joseph, both the CDC and World Health Organization have public API endpoints that allow for anyone to connect to and get public health information. Via this map, we have done this and are able to publish real-time information.

      Also, DHHS could do this as well but their policy is to have the same numbers in hand but to only publish their numbers one time a day.
