COVID-19 UPDATE FROM NC HEALTH

May 8, 2020
North Carolina Enters Phase 1 of Lifting COVID-19 Restrictions
Today at 5 p.m., North Carolina will move into Phase 1 of the plan to slowly ease certain COVID-19 restrictions that Governor Roy Cooper announced earlier this week. The Stay at Home Order remains in place with some modifications.

North Carolina is taking a three-phased approach – based on data from testing, tracing and trends – to safely lift restrictions while continuing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and save lives.

People who are sick or at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19 should continue to remain at home as much as possible. More information is included in a list of frequently asked questions about the governor's modified Stay at Home Order.

Below is a general overview of what Phase 1 means for North Carolina.

Remember Your 3 Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash 
Wear. Wait. Wash. As North Carolina moves to ease some COVID-19 restrictions starting today, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is asking people to remember these three things to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve.

If you leave home, practice your Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash:  
  • Wear a cloth face covering if you will be with other people. 
  • Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer. 
These actions can protect our families and neighbors as the state takes a cautious step forward while the virus is still circulating.

Businesses, organizations and individuals are asked to post materials and social media in English and Spanish encouraging people to remember their 3 Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash
