Governor Extends Modified Stay-At-Home Order

During the COVID-19 briefing today (January 6), North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper extended Executive Order 181 for three weeks. The modified stay-at-home order implemented a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. It went into effect on December 11 and was to expire this Friday. It will now continue through at least January 29. Businesses are required to be closed by 10 p.m. Alcohol sales must end by 9 p.m. The order was continued due to the coronavirus case numbers remaining high and an infection rate that surpassed 17% today.
