In response to Gov. Roy Cooper's plan regarding the North Carolina economy, Lt. Governor Dan Forest releases the following statement:
"Gov. Cooper's one-size-fits-all approach for reopening is not necessary for a state as large as North Carolina. This decision will needlessly crush businesses and destroy livelihoods in places that don't even have a single case of coronavirus.
We shouldn't be holding back counties that are ready to safely reopen. The governor should re-release the data he presented today at the county level so we can see which areas are ready to reopen without delay."
