Update on Local Covid-19 Rules
In North Carolina, we are still under mandatory mask requirements. All of us must wear a mask when in public and in any business or restaurant. Of course you can remove your mask while eating, or sitting at your table in a restaurant. Most of our restaurants are still doing take-out or delivery for meals. Restaurants that are open for indoor dining have reduced maximum capacities, in order to allow for 6 foot social distancing.
In North Carolina, we now have almost 90,000 cases, with 1552 deaths reported. Today the NC Dept. of Health reported 1956 new cases, up from 1827 on Monday. However, this is down from the 2462 cases that were reported this past Saturday, which was the all time high for the state. As of today we have 1109 North Carolinians hospitalized with Covid-19. This is the highest single day total since the virus began.
Governor Cooper is scheduled to announce school opening plans today. The plan is expected to detail his plans which could include a mix of in-person and online learning.
Wishing good health for you and your families, where ever you are.
