COVID-19 Update: Carolina Together Testing Program

We have a brief update for today regarding the Carolina Together Testing Program. Since Jan. 11, we have conducted more than 66,000 tests. Our overall positivity rate is 0.6% and has been 0.14% over the past week. This decreasing positivity rate is truly a testament to the many members of our community working hard to adhere to our COVID-19 Community Standards and keep everyone around them safe.

We know that it can be hard to continue to be vigilant after 11 months in this pandemic, but please stick to it. Your actions make a difference, and we need everyone to continue to persevere while the vaccines are rolling out around the country. Keep wearing a mask, keep maintaining physical distance, keep washing our hands and keep getting tested often.
