Last Updated on August 23, 2021 5:11 pm


Update Monday, August 9, 2021 – Due to the rising cases of COVID-19, WataugaOnline has resumed publishing the daily data.


Due to the change in CDC guidance and the lifting of mask mandates by NC Governor Roy Cooper, WataugaOnline.com will suspend reporting on data on a daily basis starting Friday, May 14. Should the need arise to report a significant spike in numbers then we will do so. A weekly update may be published on Fridays. Information from the AppHealthCare can be found at this link.



Data from previous months can be found at this COVID-19 data page.

Information provided by AppHealthCare

You may notice a difference between our case count and the NC DHHS state database. Sometimes we get notification of positive results before they show up on the state dashboard. Also, individuals can sometimes get “assigned” to our counties that actually do not reside in our counties. When that happens, we work with the state to get that data reassigned to the person’s place of residence.

Positive Case Count
This number is sourced from AppHealthCare and is typically updated once in the afternoon each day. This is a cumulative case count since testing began.

Active Cases
The number of individuals currently in isolation who are residents of Alleghany, Ashe or Watauga. This number will be updated once in the afternoon each day.

Positive Cases Identified that Reside Outside Our District Counties
This number is for individuals tested locally but do not reside in Alleghany, Ashe or Watauga. This is a cumulative number since we began testing and will be updated once in the afternoon each day.

Individuals Actively Being Monitored
The number of individuals AppHealthCare staff are monitoring due to being exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case. These individuals are currently in quarantine, monitoring their symptoms. This number is updated each day Monday through Friday by 5 pm.

COVID-19 Related Deaths
This is the number of individuals who have died due to complications of COVID-19.

Hospitalizations
The number of district residents of Alleghany, Ashe and Watauga Counties who have been hospitalized due to COVID-19. This is a cumulative count and does not necessarily reflect the number of individuals who are currently hospitalized.

Beginning the week of March 15th the data dashboard will be updated Monday through Friday and will not be updated on Saturday and Sunday. With the Monday update it will reflect data from the weekend.

Due to the change in CDC guidance and the lifting of mask mandates by NC Governor Roy Cooper, WataugaOnline.com will suspend reporting on data on a daily basis starting Friday, May 14. Should the need arise to report a significant spike in numbers then we will do so. A weekly update may be published on Fridays. Information from the AppHealthCare can be found at this link.

These data come from AppHealthCare district health department and reflect the cumulative positive confirmed cases at Appalachian State University. The “Employees” category includes both faculty and staff. The “Subcontractors” category indicates individuals working on campus construction projects who are employed by private construction companies, rather than the university.

For data from previous months click here.

Due to Spring Commencement taking place May 7-12, and a majority of students that were in the county leaving, WataugaOnline.com will suspend reporting on data for Appalachian State on a daily basis starting Monday May 10. Should the need arise to report a significant spike in numbers then we will do so. Information from the university can be found at this link and this link.
