As North Carolina's total confirmed cases of COVID-19 reaches 73,000 – with 1,426 deaths and nearly 1000 hospitalizations – many families are taking precautions to keep loved ones safe from the virus. However, for one local family who said they took every possible precaution, the virus hit hard, fast, and didn't spare any generation.
But her father, an essential worker at a South Carolina hospital, complained of a fever and body aches during a Father's Day get-together.
The Department of Health and Human Services called each infected person everyday while in quarantine.
Singleton is thankful she and her loved ones have recovered.
All nine family members have recovered, and Singleton is warning others to take this virus seriously.
