    So when is he going to shut down the protest? He can use the same reason, to many people not distancing, no mask and they don't even do temperature checks before allowing people to gather. He was one of them, he knows they don't distance, don't wear mask and gather with more than 25 people. But he is a hypocrite to the highest degree. Do as I say not as I do.

    Bit of a re-write

    The protest recent actions constitute an imminent hazard for the spread of COVID-19, an acute threat to North Carolinians which must not continue.

    Their actions are in "open defiance" of EO No. 141, which limits mass gatherings to protect the safety of North Carolinians. Gatherings of more than 25 people in a confined, outdoor space are strictly prohibited.

    The risk of contracting and transmitting COVID-19 is higher in settings where people gather, share facilities or have increased respiratory efforts, such as chanting, yelling and screaming.
