Rowan County COVID-19 Confirmed Cases: 30
Please remember that Governor Cooper’s Executive Order 121 prohibits any gathering of more than 10 people in one room or space (other than funerals which may gather no more than 50 people). We encourage events such as civic organization, educational group study sessions, and religious assemblies to utilize virtual means of organizing. These restrictions are specifically designed to limit the spread of Covid-19 and reduce the burden on our local hospitals and healthcare providers by reducing community spread of Covid-19.
One of the best tools we have to slow the spread of COVID-19 has been globally referred to as social distancing. You may have seen a change in terminology due to the fact that we should be practicing physical distancing from others while staying socially connected. Social Distancing and Physical Distancing are interchangeable words. Fundamentally we are social beings and during this pandemic social isolation can impact all of us. Our goal should be to remain socially connected while maintaining the recommended safe physical distance.
Please follow these steps to help protect yourself and others and reduce the spread of COVID-19
