North Carolina COVID-19 Metrics

Updated Monday-Friday by the NC Department of Health and Human Services at approximately noon. Last updated 12:05 p.m., Jan. 21, 2022.

During Dec. 31, 2021 through Jan. 14, 2022, some laboratory results from Premier Medical Laboratory Services were not submitted to NCDHHS. As a result, 46,983 test results (including 8,094 positive results) from this period were not included in data on the NCDHHS data dashboard. This issue did not cause any delays in results being sent to patients or providers. The issue with submission of results from Premier Medical Laboratory Services to NCDHHS has been resolved; case and test data reported for Jan. 18, 2022 will be higher as it will incorporate data that would have been reported on earlier dates. Additional delays in laboratories reporting tests to NCDHHS may occur as laboratories are processing unprecedented numbers of COVID-19 tests.
