Accomack County added 6 new COVID-19 cases in Tuesday morning’s report, bringing its overall total to 530, and Northampton County added one new case, for an overall total of 171. Hospitalizations and deaths from both Eastern Shore counties remained flat in Tuesday’s report. Test results from last week’s drive through testing are expected midweek, which will in all likelihood increase the Eastern Shore’s case count exponentially, but should not affect hospitalizations and deaths.
Accomack and Northampton County fell behind Buckingham County for case count in Tuesday’s report, and are now 3rd and 4th respectively.
The Eastern Shore Health District still reports only 8 outbreaks.
