Craven County has 81 confirmed COVID-19 cases as of 11:30 a.m. on May 15, 2020.  Out of the 81 confirmed positive cases, 40 of those individuals have recovered, are doing well, and are out of isolation.

There have been four deaths related to COVID-19. Two of the active COVID-19 cases are currently hospitalized.


Over the past seven days there has been a significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Craven County. While the increase in COVID-19 cases does coincide with Phase 1 re-opening, the new cases are not a result of Phase 1. With the exception of one case, all of the most recent cases are due to direct contact with a previously confirmed positive case. These newest COVID-19 cases are isolated to a segment of friends, family members, and co-workers.

It is important to recognize there are many people with COVID-19 who will not be included in daily counts of laboratory-confirmed cases, including:

  • People who had minimal or no symptoms and were not tested.
  • People who had symptoms but did not seek medical care.
  • People who sought medical care but were not tested.
  • People with COVID-19 in whom the virus was not detected by testing.

The number of laboratory-confirmed cases will increasingly provide a limited picture of the spread of infections in Craven County as COVID-19 becomes more widespread and the number of infected people who are not included in the daily counts of laboratory-confirmed cases increases.
