March Meeting Canceled

The March 26 meeting will be rescheduled due to Governor Cooper’s declaration of State of Emergency in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. Additional information about COVID-19 is posted on the Wake County Government website.

Information From Wake County Government

The Novel Corona virus, now renamed COVID-19, is a respiratory disease that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.

March 3, the North Carolina Division of Public Health confirmed the state’s first “presumptive positive” result for COVID-19 in Wake County.

Five additional presumptive positive results were reported on March 9. Two more residents tested presumptive positive for COVID-19 on March 11 and March 12. This brings the total number of presumptive positive test results in Wake County to eight.

All results are pending confirmation testing at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At this point in time, the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 in North Carolina is still low. However, there are measures that you can and should take to remain healthy.

These include:

  • Staying home if you are ill
  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water
  • Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that are frequently touched
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue
  • Discarding tissues after a single use
  • Following the CDC’s travel guidance

If you have specific questions about COVID-19 and your risk, you can email covid19.questions@wakegov.com or call 919-856-7044. Someone from our public health team will return your message within the next business day.

The Unity Breakfast is the Democratic Women of Wake County’s primary fundraising event.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
