North Carolina’s health chief says the state’s COVID-19 case trends have worsened since the economy has reopened in recent weeks.

Secretary Mandy Cohen of Health and Human Services would not say on Monday whether they would prevent more shuttered businesses from reopening when Governor Cooper’s executive order expires this week.

The number of virus-related hospitalizations remains near a record high, and the number of deaths has exceeded more than 1,200. 60 inmates in the North Carolina Department of Adult Corrections inĀ Stanly County have tested positive for the coronavirus. And state courts will extend a prohibition on jury trials through at least the end of July.

Currently, North Carolina has a total of 53,605 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Do you think North Carolina will go into PHASE 3?
