COVID-19 Situation Update: June 10

Press Release:

    Daily Update:

  • As part of North Carolina’s effort to encourage more North Carolinians to receive COVID-19 vaccines, Governor Roy Cooper announced $4 Million Summer Cash and College Tuition drawings to motivate those who have not yet been vaccinated — and thank those who have. Four vaccinated North Carolinians 18 and older will win $1 million each and four North Carolinians ages 12 to 17 will win tuition for post-secondary education. Read more HERE.
  • More than 10,000 people have received public transportation to get a COVID-19 vaccination this year, thanks to an initiative supported by the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Read more HERE.
  • NCDHHS recently announced more than 80% of adults 65 and older in the state have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Read more HERE.

    COVID-19 Vaccinations:

  • A free COVID-19 vaccine is available to all who want it. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible. Vaccination is now open to everyone 12 and older.
  • Please contact a provider to find out if you need an appointment or to confirm the type of vaccine they are providing. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for people age 12 and older, while the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for adults 18 and older. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two shots a set number of days apart. Johnson & Johnson is a one-dose vaccine. To find a provider closest to you, use our Find My Vaccine Provider online tool.
  • For more information on the COVID-19 vaccines, visit HERE or call the COVID-19 Vaccine Help Center for free at 1-888-675-4567.

    COVID-19 Testing:

  • Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested. If you are sick, use the Check My Symptoms tool to help you determine if you need a COVID-19 test. People who are not vaccinated and do not have symptoms but may have been exposed to COVID-19 should also get tested, especially people from historically marginalized communities, including Latinx/Hispanic, Black/African American and American Indian Populations, who have been disproportionately affected by the virus.
  • North Carolina has upcoming testing events scheduled in multiple counties throughout the state. For an up-to-date list of events, visit the Community Testing Events webpage. Many events offer testing at no cost. For more details about a specific event, call ahead before you go for a test.
  • North Carolina COVID-19 testing is also provided at some local health departments, doctor and clinician offices, hospitals and clinics, many pharmacy sites and retail outlets, and other community locations. Some people who work in long-term care facilities and other high-risk settings may be tested through their work. You can find testing sites by using the Find My Testing Place tool online.

    ICYMI:

  • Governor Cooper and Chief Operating Officer of NCORR Laura Hogshead shared an update on the application process for the N.C. Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program. The program is open for a second application period to assist very low-income renters that are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Read more HERE.
  • NCDHHS announced North Carolina has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to continue the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) food assistance program through Summer 2021. Read more HERE.
  • NCDHHS has launched a new public campaign encouraging North Carolinians to "Vax Up or Mask Up” to support the new guidance that lifts many of the state’s COVID-19 restrictions. Read more HERE.
