North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has ordered all public schools in the state closed beginning Monday, March 16 through at least March 30.
All public gatherings of more than 100 people will not be allowed. This is mandatory.
“There’s no question that this needs a statewide response, and statewide action,” Gov. Cooper said. “Hindsight is 20/20. I don’t want any regrets in our rearview mirror when this pandemic subsides. I am guided by a clear goal – doing all we can to keep people from getting sick & to make sure that those who do have excellent care & treatment.”
