Jacksonville, NC. (WNCT) – In a Facebook post Monday, Onslow County Commissioner Robin Kenap wrote that the county antigen is seeing a 37% positive rate for rapid testing.

This percentage was taken from a test site at Jacksonville Mall for one day.

This means that on Saturday, December 26, I received a rapid antigen test in Onslow County, with 1 in 3 people testing positive.

“The reason for reporting this number is that while it is a snapshot for a day in a timely manner, it also indicates a positive percentage of our work.” Sherry Slater, Assistant County Manager

Sherry Slater says that a quick test is less accurate than a PCR test, yet it is 85% accurate and people who take a quick test already experience Covid-19 symptoms.

“The way it is is indicative of the number of sick people in our community.” Sherry Slater, Assistant County Manager

He said the county has done everything it can to provide the community with appropriate information.

“Ultimately our citizens need to make the right decisions.” Sherry Slater, Assistant County Manager

Comments to the community in Robin Camp’s COVID-19 update suggest that these decisions reflect a political point of view or party.

“It simply came to our notice then. This is a health problem. Richard Woodruff, Jacksonville City Manager
