There are 764 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in 60 counties throughout the state of North Carolina. As expected, numbers continue to increase rapidly.
Governor Cooper signed a ’Stay At Home’ order for the entire state of North Carolina that begins at 5pm Monday, March 30. You must stay home except for:
* your job
* outdoor exercise
* to help others.
It also bans gatherings to less than 10 people and directs everyone to stay at least six feet away from each other.
An excerpt from the Governor’s press conference on March 27:
"Consider our nurses, doctors, custodial staff and other hospital workers who will be stretched beyond their capacity if we are unable to slow the spread of this disease.
Consider your family and friends you may infect if you are carrying the virus. We need to keep them safe.
CDC shows NC is experiencing widespread transmission. Some don’t know how they got the virus.
The best tool we currently have is being physically distant and staying at home....we have to act now in the safest, smartest way when we have the chance to save lives. It’s truly a matter of life and death".
