Unfortunately, Wilkes Health is not able to provide a number of residents tested or negative test results. This is due to private practices, hospitals, long term care facilities, and some being tested outside the county. We understand that this frustrating, but only positive results and deaths are required by law to be reported to the health department.

Please see below for demographic related information to COVID-19 laboratory confirmed cases. Wilkes Health will update demographics with every 5 additional cases to ensure the privacy of each identified case. 


Information labeled unknown means Wilkes Health does not have access to that information.
