Phase one of North Carolina's reopening efforts will start at 5 p.m. today, Gov. Roy Cooper said.
"I urge everyone to do what we know works, and to stay vigilant," Cooper said. "And even though today at 5 p.m., North Carolina moves into phase one, know that the stay-at-home order is still in effect."
Secretary of North Carolina Department of Health and Human Service Dr. Mandy Cohen also announced today that testing is now available for anyone exposed to Covid-19.
"We also want anyone who has been exposed to Covid-19 to get a test whether or not you're having symptoms. So you don't have to have symptoms in order to get a test," Cohen said.
North Carolina has a total of 13,868 Covid-19 cases and 527 deaths.
