Governor Cooper’s Press Conference March 17, 2020

Governor Roy A. Cooper held a press conference that afternoon at 2:00 p.m. The Governor was accompanied by Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary, NC Department of Health and Human Services, and Erik Hooks, Secretary, NC Department of Public Safety. In the question and answer session following the Governor’s comments, he affirmed that Executive Order 117 restricts public gatherings to no more than 10 individuals at the same location. He has not changed the number of individuals who may attend a public gathering at one time; the number will remain at (10) until further notice in the city limits of North Wilkesboro, Wilkesboro, and the town of Ronda.

In his press conference today, Governor Cooper stated that he hoped there would be voluntary compliance with his directive by all covered organizations. He noted the restriction’s difficulty on individuals and communities across the state, but said that, if necessary, local law enforcement would cite organizations that do not comply with the Executive Order.

With this being said, it is our commitment to help you plan a meaningful funeral service for your loved one during this time of uncertainty. Governor Roy Cooper and the CDC, and the Mayors and Town Boards  has mandated social distancing and a limited number of people (10) at visitations and/or funeral services at the chapel or other facilities (church, gravesides, etc.) in the city limits, other places in the county the number is 50 during this crisis until further notice.  Please give the family and each other the respect of no hugging or handshaking during this time.
