Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    RALEIGH: Today, Governor Roy Cooper ended the state's COVID-19 State of Emergency. With vaccines, treatments, and other tools to combat COVID-19 widely available, and with new legislation now providing the requested flexibility to North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) and health care providers to continue to respond, the state is poised to continue comprehensive pandemic response without the need for the State of Emergency.

    Many of the state's public health measures combatting the pandemic had previously been lifted, but the State of Emergency continued to allow the distribution of vaccines and tests and regulatory flexibility to ensure staff capacity in the state's healthcare system. Following legislative changes made in the budget signed by Gov. Cooper in July that allow NCDHHS to continue to respond to the pandemic, the State of Emergency can be lifted.

    "The pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to our state and people now have the knowledge and the tools like vaccines, boosters and therapeutic treatments to keep them safe," said Governor Cooper. "Executive orders issued under the State of Emergency protected public health and helped us save lives and livelihoods. North Carolina is emerging even stronger than before and my administration will continue to work to protect the health and safety of our people."

    "COVID-19 is still with us, and North Carolinians now have multiple ways to manage the virus, so it doesn't manage us," said NCDHHS Secretary Kody H. Kinsley. "NCDHHS will remain focused on COVID-19 trends and data and ensuring we stay prepared."

Authoritarian Cooper has dropped his executive order signifying that he will suspend the "crying of wolf" for future political purposes.

Some of those that still remain in business might be partly relieved; those that were forced out of business are not your friends.

Furthermore, I am still perplexed that so-called Republicans, supposedly representing a Beaufort County constituency, would not support the Richardson /Deatherage initiative to support beleaguered Beaufort County businesses against the Authoritarian plan of this Democratic Socialist governor.

Fake Frankie was chief among them, remembering well that he is still a good Democrat at heart.
