Governor Roy Cooper addressed the state this afternoon with an update on Covid-19 in our state and further actions to be taken. Some speculated that Cooper was going to announce looser restrictions, following the action of other Governors. However, Governor Cooper did not loosen any of the current NC restrictions.


"As cases across the country continue to rise, we've seen rapid increases in our key metrics here in North Carolina," Cooper said during a press conference. "Our case counts have broken single-day records on three separate days in just the last week, and the percent of tests returning positive has increased to more than ten percent."
