Covid-19 Update

04:30 PM: North Carolina governor vetoes bills to reopen gyms, fitness centers

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) on Thursday vetoed three bills that would have reopened gyms, fitness centers and amusement parks more quickly than he had planned.

The legislature was also aiming to reopen skating rinks, bowling alleys and other entertainment venues, the Raleigh News and Observer reported.
Cooper also vetoed a bill titled “Freedom to Celebrate the Fourth of July,” which would have allowed parades and fireworks shows in violation of the state’s Phase 2 restrictions.

Phase 3 was scheduled to begin June 26 but has been delayed to July 17.

Since North Carolina began reopening May 8, confirmed coronavirus cases have steadily risen. On Wednesday, a state record was set with 1,843. The overall death total is 1,391, including 66 in the past three days.

2. K&R!

Stay safe. At least our governor in Texas mandated wearing a mask, but it may have been too late.

4. Thanks, TT. I hope Texas citizens see the value of the masks, comply and

the situation in Texas improves. Certainly, adding the testing component with isolation of infected individuals, helps even more. Stay strong.

5. We just spent 10 days down at the beaches there.

Total disregard for wearing masks mainly from NC., MD, PA, VA, and OH people that we saw at our campground. We saw other people from DE, WV, SC, NJ, NY, the New England states, who had no problem wearing masks when they were out/about.
