2:50 p.m. - A temporary waiver giving people extra flexibility in preparing Living Wills and Health Care Powers of Attorney is set to end next week. These two directives have traditionally required notarization and the signatures of two witnesses. In response to the pandemic, the General Assembly passed a law in May waiving the the witness requirement until July 31. The Secretary of State's office says emergency video notarizations will be available to people preparing their advance directives until March. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

8:11 a.m. - Thales Academy in Raleigh says a staff member who was visiting from another campus has tested positive for COVID-19. The private school reopened in-person classes this week. Administrators say the building had a deep cleaning last night, and is reopening this morning. – Will Michaels, WUNC

8:05 a.m. - The State Commerce Department is notifying recipients of unemployment benefits that federal supplements will end this weekend. The extra $600 a week from the federal government will expire tomorrow unless Congress passes an extension. – Will Michaels, WUNC

7:54 a.m. - UNC men's basketball coach Roy Williams and his wife Wanda Williams are donating more than 600-thousand dollars in scholarships for spring sports athletes whose seasons were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of those student-athletes who were seniors are returning for the upcoming season. – Will Michaels, WUNC

7:42 a.m. - President Trump will visit a plant in the Triangle that's helping develop a COVID-19 vaccine. The White House says the President will be at Diosynth Bio-technologies in Morrisville on Monday. – Will Michaels, WUNC

7:36 a.m. - With indicators of the COVID-19 outbreak in North Carolina trending in the wrong direction, Governor Roy Cooper hit pause on the state's reopening last week. Meanwhile, some restaurant owners are choosing to close their dining rooms again.

When a couple of restaurants in Greensboro had employees test positive for COVID-19, others felt it necessary to scale back their operations. It was enough for Alex Amaroso to return to Phase 1 operations. He's the owner of Cheesecakes by Alex downtown.

"From my eyes, it looked bad,” Amaroso said. “And I just wanted to do everything I could to protect the people that support us."

Amaroso says his bakery will still offer curbside pick-up, carryout, online ordering and delivery. – Naomi Prioleau, WUNC

7:29 a.m. - The UNC System Board of Governors is waiving testing requirements for prospective students because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of Governors decided that students applying for admission to any UNC System school in spring through fall of 2021 will not be required to submit SAT or ACT scores. The one-year waiver will help those who are struggling to find a way to take the tests, after many testing dates were canceled. – Liz Schlemmer, WUNC

July 23, 2020

6:20 p.m. - President Donald Trump is ordering the cancellation of the Republican National Convention in Florida. Trump's announcement comes amid a massive COVID-19 outbreak in that state. Republican delegates will plan to meet in Charlotte, the original site of the planned convention before the president's feud with Governor Roy Cooper over pandemic-related precautions. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

6:10 p.m. - The state Department of Health and Human Services is again urging Hispanic people to take precautions against COVID-19. This population is at disproportionate risk of spreading the coronavirus. DHHS is partnering with the Consuls General of Mexico and Guatemala to encourage essential workers to wear face coverings on the job and to get tested. DHHS recently announced hundreds of new free testing sites, some of which do not require proof of American citizenship. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

6 p.m. - The North Carolina Policy Collaboratory at UNC Chapel Hill will distribute $29 million toward research projects focused on treatment, testing and prevention of COVID-19. According to an email, the 85 research projects are intended to provide new data and information to state law and policymakers to help guide the state’s pandemic response. The Collaboratory will have to update the General Assembly in September about the status of its research projects across the 14 UNC System campuses. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

5:50 p.m. - Some restaurants and eateries in Guilford County, where COVID-19 cases are on the rise, are closing their dining rooms again. Greensboro restaurants can still apply for special event permits that allow outdoor dining in public spaces. - Naomi Prioleau, WUNC

3:30 p.m. - The UNC System Board of Governors decided today that it will not refund its students' tuition or fees even if any of its campuses move to fully remote learning. Students will still have to pay fees for libraries and recreation centers and other on-campus services. Six board members opposed the policy. They argued it would charge students unfairly for the value of the services they would not get during remote learning. Universities could, however, give pro-rated refunds on housing and dining bills. Board Chair Randy Ramsey supported the measure. 

"As you know, last spring tuition and fees were not refunded. We are simply trying to support our campuses and let them understand that we are owning this decision and we're not expecting them to have to do so," Ramsey said."

Ramsey outlined the UNC System board and president will make the final call on whether any of its campuses move to remote learning. All are currently set to reopen to students this fall semester. - Liz Schlemmer, WUNC

3:20 p.m. - Of the North Carolina workers in a new High Point University survey, 58% say they can't do their jobs from home and 36% said working from home could be an option if they had to. Ten percent of those polled said they were unemployed and looking for work, that's higher than the official unemployment rate of 7.6% for June. The researchers say that may indicate economic conditions weakening with COVID-19 cases on the rise. The poll of registered voters conducted in June and July also found 31% felt worse off financially than a year ago, 37% percent said they were better off. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC

3:10 p.m. - The North Carolina National Guard has been on duty for the last four-and-a-half months helping with the state response to COVID-19. The Guard says that's winding down tomorrow. About 250 guardsmen will remain on standby for pandemic relief efforts. At the height of the response, 940 soldiers and airmen were activated, primarily to assist with the distribution of personal protective equipment and food across the state. Guardsmen coming off duty are screened for the coronavirus. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC

1:10 p.m. - The State Department of Health and Human Services is reporting another record-high number of people in hospitals with COVID-19. Thursday’s tally stands at 1,188. Nearly 2,000 more lab-confirmed cases were reported Thursday. There have now been nearly 107,000 confirmed cases and more than 1,700 deaths since the outbreak started in North Carolina. Hospitalizations have also been rising steadily since last month. – Will Michaels, WUNC

8:04 a.m. - UNC Health is preparing to enroll candidates in a nationwide trial for a potential COVID-19 vaccine. The health care system is part of a Phase 3 trial for a vaccine being developed by Moderna. – Will Michaels, WUNC

July 22, 2020

6:40 p.m. - An Onslow County gym owner is suing several Holly Ridge town and police officials in federal court over enforcement of one of Governor Roy Cooper's pandemic business closure orders. In the suit, Nick Koumalatsos  claims that officers entered his business without a warrant and pursued an unlawful investigation into his alleged violations against Governor Roy Cooper's pandemic order which closed many businesses, including gyms and fitness facilities. News outlets report the lawsuit claims officials conspired to violate Koumalatsos' civil rights. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

6:30 p.m. - Delays in diagnostic testing are slowing down response to COVID-19, and some in the health care sector say the supply chain is a major factor. CEO Gene Woods told a U.S. Senate panel this week that Atrium Health in Charlotte could typically process 4,000 tests per day but are only doing about one-quarter of that. News outlets report that Woods said chemical reagents and swabs are in short supply. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

4:30 p.m. - A committee of the UNC Board of Governors has affirmed that it will require all campuses to charge the full amounts of tuition and student fees this fall, regardless of whether students remain on-campus or learn online. That means none of the 17 UNC system schools will be allowed to refund any tuition or fees if they are forced to shut down campuses during the academic year. Wendy Murphy, a member of the UNC Board of Governors and the Budget and Finance Committee that advanced the policy, argued universities can figure out how to remain open. 

"If we can go to Walmart, and eat in restaurants and hang out at the beach and all these things I have been witnessing, we can certainly find a way to go to school, live on campus, with safeguards and precautions," said Murphy.

The full Board of Governors still needs to vote on the measure tomorrow. - Dave DeWitt, WUNC

4:20 p.m. - Tuesday, Governor Roy Cooper called people who refuse to wear masks amid the pandemic "selfish," today, a marketing and psychology expert at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business says that probably won't help the governor's cause. Professor Gavan Fitzsimons told a business roundtable that shaming those who disagree with him is unlikely to inspire compliance.

"Using a term like "selfish" is going to lead people who are already digging in to dig in harder," said Fitzsimons.  He added that people are more likely to cooperate if they feel a sense of agency in a situation. For example, retailers enforcing the requirement might offer customers several types of face coverings to choose from instead of simply telling customers that they must wear a mask or leave. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC 

3:45 p.m. - A committee of the UNC Board of Governors has narrowly approved a temporary waiver that would make it optional for students to submit standardized admission test scores when applying to UNC system schools in 2021. The waiver of the SAT and ACT was requested from the admissions directors of all schools in the UNC system. The full Board must still approve the test score waiver tomorrow before it can go into effect. - Dave DeWitt, WUNC

3:40 p.m. - The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in North Carolina has increased by more than 2,100 since yesterday. Another 30 people have died. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

 

3:35 p.m. - The return of athletics at Guilford College is being postponed. The Division III Old Dominion Athletic Conference, to which Guilford belongs, says competition for fall and winter sports won't begin before January 1. Several other conferences with North Carolina teams are also delaying the resumption of play because of coronavirus concerns — that includes the Division I ACC and MEAC. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC

3:30 p.m. - Nearly five months after North Carolina recorded its first case of COVID-19, researchers in the state are still trying to learn more about the coronavirus and help develop a vaccine. UNC Health is preparing to enroll participants from across the country in a Phase 3 trial of a potential vaccine developed by Moderna. Other researchers have been sequencing the virus' genome to better understand why it affects people differently. Blossom Damania of UNC Chapel Hill's medical school says that could go beyond underlying health conditions.

"There is a lot of research undergoing right now about how people's genes contribute to detecting and dampening the virus versus people who don't have those genes or have different types of genes and can't control the virus," said Damania. UNC is also among the institutions working on antibody testing, Damania says, which could help determine whether asymptotic individuals had the virus. - Will Michaels, WUNC 

3:20 p.m. - Sites in the Pisgah National Forest in Western North Carolina kept their bathroom facilities closed to the public when trails reopened amid the pandemic. Now, the U.S. Forest Service says that’s led to a stinky problem. Spokesperson Adrienne Rubiaco told Blue Ridge Public Radio that outdoor enthusiasts feeling the sudden urge should use the so-called “cat hole” method: 

“When you’re done using the bathroom, cover it back up, preferably off of a trail, not near a trail or near a developed recreation area where visitors will be visiting the forest.”
 For hikers using toilet paper, she says, the “leave no trace” principle applies — put it in a plastic bag and pack it out. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC  

3:10 p.m. - President Trump will get the Republican Party's nomination for president in North Carolina despite the party moving its convention to Florida. The Republican National Committee says its summer meeting, which includes the official nomination, will happen in Charlotte before the public portion of the event finishes in Jacksonville, Florida. The GOP moved most of the convention after Governor Roy Cooper refused to give the president assurances that it could happen with a full-capacity crowd. The party has still had to scale down the event as coronavirus infections surge in Florida. - Will Michaels, WUNC

 

3 p.m. - State health officials have just added a third contractor to expand a new COVID-19 testing effort. They're setting up hundreds of temporary testing sites aimed at reaching minority populations hard hit by the pandemic. They discovered key geographic areas lacked testing sites and are targeting those locations. The state has hired contractors including Vidant, which operates a major healthcare system in Eastern North Carolina. Shannon Dowler, chief medical officer for NC Medicaid, said if the three-week initiative is successful, it could be extended well into August and include up to 600 testing events. - Jay Price, WUNC

2:50 p.m. - The Wake County school board has revised its plan to open schools next month, and will keep all students at home for at least the first three weeks. The state's largest school district was expected to open with a rotation of in-person and remote learning. But the board now has a tentative plan to transition pre-K and special education students to in-person classes in September. The Johnston County school board is meeting tonight to decide how its district will open. - Will Michaels, WUNC

7:52 a.m. - A judge has scheduled a hearing for next month in a lawsuit filed by Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest against Governor Roy Cooper over his COVID-19 executive orders. Forest argues some of them should be invalid because Cooper did not seek approval from the Council of State. Forest is a member of that council. – Will Michaels, WUNC

7:41 a.m. - The state is providing more than 900,000 masks and other supplies to farm workers to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Governor Roy Cooper said Tuesday that agricultural work is risky but essential to the state's economy and food supply.

Cooper said the pandemic has damaged the economy and the job market. He said the state has distributed more than 6.2 billion dollars in unemployment benefits to more than 815,000 people since the spring. – Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

7:35 a.m. - The Centers for Disease Control suggests that people with mild-to-moderate cases of COVID-19 are likely not infectious 10 days after the onset of symptoms. State Health Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen announced Tuesday that it is probably not necessary for businesses to require employees who have gotten sick to receive a negative test result before returning to work.  Instead, Cohen said, individuals should evaluate their symptoms.

“First, has it been at least 10 days since your symptoms started?” Cohen said. “Two, has it been 24 hours since you last had a fever without using fever reducing medicines? And three, have your symptoms -- such as cough or shortness of breath -- improved?"

Cohen's guidance comes amid a shortage of COVID-19 testing supplies at several North Carolina labs. She said the state Health Department is pursuing several avenues to alleviate backlogs, such as facilitating partnerships between testing centers and small labs, and researching alternatives to diagnostic tests. – Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

July 21, 2020

6:10 p.m. - The Compass Center for Women and Families is launching Orange County’s first short-term emergency housing for people fleeing domestic violence in nearly three decades. Executive Director Cordelia Heaney says the Compass Center's hotline received double the number of requests for emergency housing this spring compared to last year. She said mounting stress related to the coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home recommendations were factors. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

5:55 p.m. - The Wake County School Board has voted on a new plan for student attendance for the fall. The district is calling it a "Plan B Transitional" plan. It calls for all students to begin the year remotely, and then bring back special needs and Pre-K students on September 8. The board says all other students will return to in-person instruction at a later, unspecified, date. - Dave DeWitt, WUNC

5:45 p.m. - Governor Roy Cooper is praising the businesses that require face coverings in keeping with his statewide mask mandate. Cooper says their compliance is a sign that these businesses leaders care about protecting employees and customers from COVID-19. He had harsh words for those who flout the mandate.

"For those who continue to defy basic decency and common sense because they refuse to wear a mask, either wear one or don't go in the store. The refusal to wear a mask is selfish," said Cooper.

North Carolina has had more than 100,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began. This Saturday, set a record for the highest number of new cases reported in a single day. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

3:35 p.m. - For the second time, the State Health Plan will extend the cost waiver for COVID-19 testing and medical treatment for its members. An email from State Treasurer Dale R. Folwell's office says the waiver covers associated deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC

3:10 p.m. - The chief justice of the state Supreme Court has extended restrictions on jury trials and other court proceedings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chief Justice Cheri Beasley said today that jury trials would be postponed for at least another 30 days. Beasley said she would also keep physical distancing measures in place, like prohibiting crowded court sessions, and encouraging filings to be submitted by mail. - Will Michaels, WUNC

12:42 p.m. - The State Department of Health and Human Services is reporting a new high in the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19.

The regional arts festival is in its 16th year. The event typically draws about 30,000 visitors to Wilson's whirligig park. The park features the kinetic sculptures of local folk artist Vollis Simpson. – Amy Jeffries, WUNC

11:05 a.m. - The Greensboro Symphony Orchestra is postponing events through September. The symphony says it will reschedule planned POPS and masterworks performances. Governor Roy Cooper announced a week ago that he was extending restrictions that have kept entertainment venues closed during the COVID-19 outbreak through at least Aug. 7. – Amy Jeffries, WUNC

10:06 a.m. - Health officials in North Carolina are investigating a cluster of coronavirus cases after five casino employees tested positive for the virus within two weeks. The Jackson County Department of Public Health said in a news release Monday the cases were identified among Harrah’s Cherokee Casino employees who work in the table games section. The regional manager of the casino said no other employees or customers have been identified as having close contacts with the employee who have tested positive. The casino had closed in March and reopened in late May with 30% capacity. The business said in May employees would be having daily health checks. - The Associated Press

9:40 a.m. - Cumberland County Schools will have remote learning through at least Sept. 25. The school board voted unanimously Tuesday morning to start the school year next month with virtual learning due to concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak. Meanwhile, the Orange County school board has voted to extend the period of remote learning to start the school year from four to nine weeks, and Dare County Schools will also start the year online. Tuesday afternoon, the Wake County school board is expected to consider starting the year with remote learning. – Will Michaels, WUNC

7:34 a.m. - Road tests still aren’t being performed by examiners from the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles due to COVID-19, so now certain adults are exempt from passing one to obtain a regular license. The DMV announced that starting Wednesday it’ll waive the road test for drivers 18 or older in several specific situations. This follows the General Assembly approving a law last month allowing youths to defer the road test otherwise required to obtain a limited provisional license. The adults seeking a waiver still must make an appointment with the DMV and provide all required documents in person. – The Associated Press

7:20 a.m. - The Orange County school board has voted to extend the period of remote learning to start the school year from four to nine weeks.  A state directive allows schools to open next month with a hybrid system of in-person and virtual classrooms.  But each district can vote to move entirely online.  School boards in Wake and Cumberland County are expected to consider starting the year with remote learning later today. – Will Michaels, WUNC

This year an additional accessory was part of the team uniform, players, coaches, staff, and management were all wearing masks. On social media, the Canes linked from their class portrait to the state health department's PSA encouraging people to wear a mask, wash hands often, and wait six feet apart from others to avoid spreading the coronavirus. The Canes are scheduled to return to play with a best-of-five series against the New York Rangers that starts August 1. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC

4:20 p.m. - Last week the UNC System Board of Governors notified chancellors of the state's 16 public colleges that they would be required to write plans to slash their budgets by as much as half. The email directive from Board Chair Randy Ramsey said those plans should be specific, with a list of which programs would be cut and which employees would be furloughed or eliminated. In a subsequent statement, Ramsey said this is to prepare for worst-case scenarios. Universities are bracing for losses in enrollment as well as possible state budget cuts due to the pandemic. Universities won't release final enrollment counts until after the fall semester begins. Some universities are expected to submit their worst-case budgets as soon as this week, as the Board of Governors prepares to meet on Wednesday. - Liz Schlemmer, WUNC

 

4:10 p.m. - Major League Soccer is delaying the first seasons of several expansion teams, including a new team in Charlotte. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the debut of the Charlotte club will be pushed off by a year to 2022. MLS teams had played two games each when the coronavirus prompted a shutdown in March. Play resumed on July 8 with a tournament being held in Florida. Dallas and Nashville withdrew after numerous players tested positive for COVID-19. - Amy Jeffries, WUNC

3:55 p.m. - The state Department of Health and Human Services is now providing more details about hospitalizations related to COVID-19. The data now show the trend of confirmed hospitalizations each day, and break down hospitals' capacity based on eight regions of the state. For instance, the region that includes Charlotte had the highest number of hospitalizations as of this weekend, and nearly 30% of all hospital admissions statewide. It also shows case counts and the number of deaths by ZIP code. The department says the new information is designed to keep better track of hospitals' capacity to care for people with COVID-19. Hospitalizations have been rising steadily for nearly a month. More than 1,100 people were in hospitals with COVID-19 at last count. - Will Michaels, WUNC

12:26 p.m. - North Carolina has now had more than 100,000 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

The Wake County school board is meeting this week to revisit its original plan to rotate students with one week of in-person instruction, and two weeks of virtual classes. – Will Michaels, WUNC

8:07 a.m. - North Carolina seems to have stopped hemorrhaging jobs. The leisure and hospitality industry facilitated a five-point improvement in the unemployment rate from 12.8% in May to 7.6% in June. That coincides with Governor Roy Cooper's decision to ease restrictions on restaurants, hotels and retailers. But June's unemployment rate is still twice as high as it was the year before. Daily jobless benefit claims still exceed the average weekly total from before COVID-19 hit. The Division of Employment Security says more than 8,500 claims were filed on Thursday. Since mid-March, more than 1.1 million North Carolinians have filed for unemployment. - Rebecca Martinez, WUNC
