North Carolina COVID-19 Dashboard

North Carolina has relied on science, timely data, and key metrics to guide its pandemic response. Because no one metric captures everything, we use a combination of metrics to guide our approach. The most important of these are below.

As trends rise and fall, you can choose to add layers of protection to mitigate your risk. Get tips on layering protection.

Update: This dashboard’s new format launched on March 23, 2022 and will be updated every Wednesday. More about the new design.
