Gov. Cooper Extends Modified Stay At Home Order
Last week, Governor Cooper announced that North Carolina’s Modified Stay At Home Order, requiring people to be at home from 10 pm – 5 am, will be extended through at least Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. per Executive Order No. 189. Face covering requirements and restrictions on individuals gathering in both indoor and outdoor settings are still in place.
In addition to the Modified Stay at Home Order, the DHHS secretarial directive remains in effect. People should stay home and only leave for essential purposes such as buying food, accessing health care, and going to school or work.
The moratorium on evictions in North Carolina has also been extended. The evictions moratorium extension is in response to President Biden’s Executive Order that extended the moratorium through the end of March.
