Here’s what’s happening now:

Another week of COVID-19 cases moving in the right direction, according to Raleigh Convergence's weekly analysis.

The midpoint for COVID-19 week-over-week case growth for Wake County ZIP codes dropped to 2.9% from last week’s 4.1%. The slowed growth in cases follows the trend seen in most parts of the US this week.

The percent of tests that are positive in Wake County is still high, but close to the goal. The 14-day average is now 6.2%, down from 7.3% last week. A 5% or lower percentage of tests that are positive is the statewide goal. [See your ZIP code]
