Welp! You can thank all the Republicans, who wanted North Carolina to open up too fast, wearing no mask, no social distancing, and now has forced Governor Roy Cooper to issue new stay-at-home orders for North Carolinians.
On Tuesday, Governor Roy Cooper issued a new stay-at-home order for North Carolina to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the state. The new order will go into effect on Friday, which orders most businesses to close at 10 p.m. each night.
We have to act now to save lives, preserve hospital capacity, and protect our economy, Cooper said in a coronavirus press conference.
All restaurants, bars, personal care businesses, and most retailers are ordered to close between 10 p.m.-5 a.m. Alcohol sales for on-site consumption will have to end at 9 p.m.
The stay-at-home order means just what it says. People are to stay home during those hours, Cooper said.
This order will remain in effect for three weeks starting Friday, December 11th.
