Commissioners unanimously voted to send the letter at their regular Board meeting on April 20, 2020 after Commissioner Frank Aikmus requested the discussion be added to the agenda.

The letter, signed by all five Commissioners, reads in part, “Please re-open North Carolina. And when you do, please continue to support each county, city, and community with good data, essential funding, impactful research findings, and quality public health support. But please allow Union County, and each county, to determine how best to deploy those resources for the well-being of their own residents.”

Governor Cooper signed Executive Order 121, which implemented a statewide Stay at Home Order for 30 days effective March 30, to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
