Just as COVID-19 outbreaks at Craven County nursing homes are brought under control (see chart below), Craven County assisted living complexes are experiencing outbreaks of their own.

Croatan Village Assisted Living Facility reported 24 residents have tested positive for the virus at a facility that started with two cases, all among staff, according to new and previously released data.

It is a licensed 72-bed assisted living and memory care facility located at 4522 Old Cherry Point Road.

Courtyards at Berne Village reports that four staff and two residents have the virus. The 80-bed facility is located at 2701 Amhurst Blvd. in New Bern.

And RHA Howell Longterm Care Facility in River Bend has six staff and eight residents infected at the 125-bed facility.

Outbreaks at PruittHealth-Trent near (but unaffiliated with) CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern and Riverpoint Crest Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Old Cherry Point Road are still listed as active but the numbers have remained stable (see chart, below).

Craven County Schools reported infections of staff and students who have been in-school because their parents are staff.

No new information was available about an outbreak at Craven Correctional Institute in Vanceboro, but it does not show up on a list of active outbreaks compiled by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

The number of lab-confirmed COVID-19 cases reached 1,234 as of 11 a.m. Friday, adding 24 cases in 24 hours.

There were 246 active cases as of Friday — the highest number of active cases for Craven County since the first case was detected in the county in mid-March.


  1. Mr. Foster,
    Can you please share the data source you are presenting as this has more than the NCDHHS which is supposed to be updated each Tuesday and Friday.

    Thank you.

  2. Why is Bayview nursing and rehab not mentioned..with over 85 staff and residents testing positive..11 deaths .I would think that would be front page news
