Updated Local COVID Information

by | Aug 30, 2021

Here’s the latest COVID information for the Davidson Community.


As the nation, state, and town continue to deal with the impacts of COVID-19, here are some of the most recent trends on the local level.

Overall, over the last 14 days, there has been an increase county-wide of laboratory confirmed infections, hospitalizations due to infection, and a slight increase in the average percent positive (13.7%) (up from 13.2%).

The county reports 624,713 residents (56.0%) of the total population are at least partially vaccinated and 573,372 (52.0%) residents of the total population are fully vaccinated within the county. Meanwhile, the county’s map for vaccination rates ages 12+ from August 9 still remains the most up-to-date map. We remain among the highest two brackets for our census areas. You can view that map here.

This is where the most recent local statistics might surprise you: 10.3% of newly reported cases in the past two weeks are 0-9 years, 6.9% is 10-14 years, 4.7% is 15-17 years, 13.3% is 18-24 years, 32.2% is 25-39 years, 13.9% is 40-49 years, 12.7% is 50-64 years, 6.0% is 65+. Bottom line, the cases in patients under the age of 18 are rising.

There have been 57 cases recorded in our zip code in the past 14 days from August 12- August 25, 2021. Slightly lower than last 14-day block.

The Davidson zip code continues to have the lowest COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 14 days.

 The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) site here lists the total zip code cases and deaths for 28036 as 1,1987 cases and 15 deaths.
