These are considered official numbers reported to the state, which will in turn, be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Delays may be experienced with the reporting of cases and deaths from the local health department to the state health department.

Of the 16 positive cases in Hardy County, the vast majority are quarantined at home. Only two people are known to be hospitalized. Three have recovered.

The Hardy County Health Department has completed the necessary contact tracing to prevent additional transmission.

Because of HIPPA regulations, information regarding individuals cannot be released to the public.
