North Carolina Looks Forward To a Three-Phase Re-Opening As Corona Virus Restrictions Are Relaxed

 

North Carolina's Governor Roy Cooper announced a three-phase, data-driven plan on Thursday, May 7th to relax the restrictions of the state's stay-at-home orders and to gradually re-open businesses statewide. The three-phase re-opening plan begins today, May 8th at 5:00 PM. 

 

Phase 1 will allow more businesses to reopen. People can take some nonessential trips. People  must adhere to social distancing guidelines and those who can work from home are highly encouraged to continue to do so. During Phase 1, child care centers are permitted re-enroll children under strict cleaning requirements. Nursing home visitor restrictions remain in place. Worship services of more than 10 people are allowed if they are outside and social distancing is followed. And keep in mind that the stay at home orders are not yet officially lifted. 

 

North Carolina beaches are beginning to reopen. For more information about Phase I of beach reopenings, click here. State Parks can also now re-open with limitations as to the number of people who can gather in them. Trails and restrooms, as well as some boat access, will be open during Phase 1. For park-by-park details on re-openings, click here.

 

For now, "close-contact" businesses such as hair and nail salons, gyms, and movie theaters will remain closed. Restaurants will continue to be limited to drive-thru, takeout or delivery service until Phase 2, which hopefully will occur on or about May 22nd. And it's worth noting that a number of  businesses now allowed to open are choosing to limit their operations below the 50% capacity that is permitted.

 

Schools will not reopen this year in North Carolina and, in general, traditions graduation ceremonies will not take place. In other news, furloughed workers in North Carolina are now eligible for jobless benefits. NASCAR, which is a big part of North Carolina lifestyle will begin racing on May 17th with seven races planned. No doubt, NASCAR fans are thrilled. 

 

Phase 2 of reopening won't take place till at least two or three weeks after Phase 1 goes into effect. But the hope is that Phase 2 can begin by May 22nd. Phase 3 won't go into effect for at least four to six weeks after Phase 2 goes into effect. Meantime, the Governor has reserved the right to roll back reopening plans in the event of an increase in corona virus cases.

James Dray good morning, James... as you know, in our largest city and county we were not an essential business until May 1st. It will be at least another two weeks before our restaurants get opened again.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 good morning, Sheila and Larry... thankfully we were determined to be essential as of May 1st... but people have been so frightened by all the closings, it's a slow go for people being willing to put themselves out there to look at homes or let people into their homes.

We are opening back up here in NH too. The only issue is the beaches remain closed for fear MA residents where they have heavy infections still, will flood here and infect locals.

Good morning Nina.  It sounds like by May 22nd hopefully everyone will be able to get some beauty in.  I know that sounds shallow.  I didn't go yesterday, I am still waiting to see how things go here and let them have a test run.  Glad to hear your area is starting to open up.  Praying all goes well for all of us!

Such a crazy time in our world that seems so ridiculous, rather than being able to deal with an issue and alleviate it the solution is for everyone to stay home and not be able to work, yet their bills don't go away, haha.

We are getting ready for Keller Williams Red Day, our big volunteer event - my office  is volunteering at a women's shelter/food bank - I thought about volunteering - and then I thought I am 67 - and I can't take a chance on volunteering with that many people from DC who are having a hard time in life - I think we are going to have to use common sense going forward - even once they open the stores and restaurants and beaches

Nina, nice to see some states re-opening slowly, and sure hope people remember it could spread again.

Lise Howe I totally agree, Lise. I just got a summons for jury duty... just a few months away from being old enough to get automatically excused. But will be calling this week to say there's not a snowball's chance in hell that as a woman in her 70's I'll be going into a crowd at the courthouse on June 3rd when we will still be living with corona virus restrictions in North Carolina.

Joan Cox hi Joan... we can only hope that people exercise some common sense. I heard there lots of long lines yesterday in Charlotte at various retailers who were allowed to reopen this weekend.

Nina, listening to the Special Report on how states are opening too early, and will see another outbreak of the virus.   Hope they are not correct.

Joan Cox hi Joan... I'm one of those who thinks we just can't stay shuttered forever. Sweden didn't shut down. They just asked people to distance socially, stay home as much as feasible, and just be sensible. They now have major herd immunity, which is what we need to develop.
