ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - During her weekly press briefing, Dr. Molly O’Dell, the director of communicable disease control for the Roanoke Alleghany Health districts, addressed a rise in COVID-19 cases in our area.

That includes 22 new cases overnight. The number of deaths for the RCAHD has remained at 24.

Another key point O’Dell mentioned is travel, especially to hot spots, like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

”One of the significant locations people are going and coming back positive over and over again is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, so we are actually suggesting that people who go to quarantine themselves for 14 days because we’ve had so many positives from Myrtle Beach,” said O’Dell.

O’Dell added there have been no additional cases from any local protests.
