NC Coronavirus Task Force Unveils COVID-19 County Alert System

Governor Cooper and members of the NC Coronavirus Task Force unveiled on Tuesday the COVID-19 County Alert System, a statewide data sharing tool aimed at helping community leaders make informed decisions based on local virus transmission metrics. According to Rebecca Planchard, Senior Early Childhood Policy Advisor at the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), the Alert System “pinpoints counties with the highest levels of viral spread and offers specific recommendations for individuals, businesses, community organizations, and public officials to bring numbers down.”
