Rowan County Case Information: https://bit.ly/rowan-covid19-hub
On Friday, May 8 at 5pm North Carolina will transition to a modified Stay-at-Home Order and enter Phase 1 of the Governor’s plan to ease certain restrictions and begin reviving the economy. Rowan County does not have any additional restrictions beyond the Governor’s Executive Orders.
The modification provides additional reasons for people to leave home, but the Executive Order remains in place and can result in legal consequences. According to State guidance, “All North Carolina residents should continue to stay at home except for the purposes outlined in this Order. Anyone who is feeling sick should stay home and should leave the house only to seek health care or for some other necessary reason.”
Rowan County continues to experience community spread (person to person) of the virus. Not including congregate care settings, 44.1% of positive cases (76 of 172) have occurred in the last 7 days. It is extremely important to remain cautious when leaving home. Please do not let your guard down!
Remember the 3 W’s: Wear a cloth face covering, Wait 6 feet apart/ avoid close contact, Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer.
