As of Friday morning, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) was reporting 399 (**) COVID-19-related deaths in the state.

Transylvania County remained at seven confirmed cases despite news Thursday that two out-of-county residents who work in the county had contracted COVID-19. The numbers are not attributed to Transylvania as the two are Buncombe County residents.

As of Friday, the state was also reporting 133,832 (***) completed tests in the state and 10,923 (*) laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases.

There were also 547 patients currently hospitalized.

*This number reflects cases that were tested and returned positive, including the NC State Laboratory of Public Health and all hospital and commercial labs.

All data are preliminary. Not all cases of COVID-19 are tested, so this does not represent the total number of people in North Carolina who have or had COVID-19.

**This number reflects deaths reported to public health in persons with laboratory-confirmed COV-ID-19.

Deaths will be included in this count after confirmation by local public health departments.

***This number reflects testing completed by the NC State Laboratory of Public Health and reporting hospital and commercial laboratories.

According to the state, Henderson had 195 cases and 21 deaths, and Buncombe had 65 cases and four deaths.
