Case count reaches 6


Four cases in 10 days.

A slow trend if you look most anywhere, but for Graham County, which stood as one of the final four in North Carolina to not have a positive case of COVID-19, it might raise some eyebrows. 

However, as kinks continue to be worked out, testing has improved in both reliability and timelinesses.

Graham’s sixth confirmed case appeared quietly on the daily updates provided by the county health department late Tuesday evening. The fifth had been confirmed June 4.
The fourth positive test had been announced on June 1, while the third was confirmed on May 30. Before that, Graham County had went three weeks without a positive announcement.

On Tuesday, the four most recent cases were still active, while the first two have recovered.
