COVID-19 Holiday Safety Information from Cape Fear Valley Health

Cases of COVID-19 in Cumberland County have fallen recently, but residents should remain vigilant during the holidays, Cape Fear Valley Health’s chief clinical officer said.

dr. Michael Zappa, who also serves as Cape Fear Valley’s chief of emergency services, spoke about illness and holiday safety on Tuesday during the Making Rounds live episode of the health system. The show was broadcast on the WIDU radio network and streamed on Cape Fear Valley’s Facebook page.

Zappa said Cape Fear Valley was experiencing the peak of COVID-19 hospitalizations when the delta variant of the disease hit.

“Hospitalizations have fallen to a much more manageable level,” he said. “If you think back to when we were at the height of the pandemic… we had 150 people (with COVID-19) hospitalized and almost 30 of them in the ICU on a ventilator.”
