County map shows zip codes of COVID-19 cases

SALISBURY — On the same day as Rowan County saw its first COVID-19 death, Rowan County released a map of the 14 local COVID-19 cases by zip code.

On Friday, the county released more data about local cases in the form of a map showing the 28147 zip code, which is in the Salisbury area, had five people with COVID-19. That was the highest of any zip code in the county.

Other cases are as follows:

• Four cases in the 28144 zip code — in the Salisbury area.

• Two confirmed cases in the 28146 zip code, which includes parts of Salisbury and some of the eastern and southern parts of the county.

• Two confirmed cases in the 28088 zip code — in the Landis Area.

• One confirmed case in the 28159 zip code — in the Spencer area.

Other zip codes in the county do not yet have a resident with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

As of Friday, there were at least 763 cases of COVID-19 in the state and four deaths, including one in Rowan.
