Wake County Fights COVID-19

North Carolina identified its first COVID-19-positive case, a resident of Wake County, in early March 2020. Every day since then, the county has worked hard to educate residents about how to prevent the spread of the virus. We’ve also set up testing sites that are accessible to all while providing results in 24-48 hours.

Currently, the county is focused on vaccinating residents – our best defense against the virus. Everyone who wants a vaccine will eventually be able to get one for free. But, that process will take months. The supply of the vaccine is low, and the need is high.

Until the vaccine is more widely available, we strongly encourage you to continue practicing the 3 Ws – Wear a face covering, Wash your hands and Wait six feet apart.
