2 p.m. - Gov. Roy Cooper will give a coronavirus update for the state. You can watch it live in this story or on our YouTube page. NCDHHS will go over COVID-19 trends and Dept. of Public Safety will address how the face mask order will be better enforced. 

  • NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen went over our four key metrics: COVID-like syndromic cases, cases, percentage of positive tests, and hospitalizations. She said North Carolina is doing better in all of these areas. 
  • Cohen said we're starting to see the number of new cases decline as well as the number of people coming to the hospital with COVID-like symptoms. 
  • Cohen said hospitalizations are leveling off and our percentage of positive cases are going down as well.
  • Cohen said test results are coming back faster now. 
  • DPS Secretary Eric Hooks said they want law enforcement agencies to be involved in educating the community to wear face masks. Hooks said they want to avoid arrests and law enforcement can issue citations as an alternative. 
  • Cooper said the ACC has not been in touch with NCDHHS regarding games this fall. As of right now, ACC football is set to begin next month. Some conferences including the Big 10 are postponing their seasons due to the pandemic. 

12:30 p.m. - State health officials announced a major reporting error in the number of COVID-19 tests conducted since the start of the pandemic. Previously, North Carolina reported more than 2 million tests performed. Officials say now that is 200,000 more tests than were actually performed. The state blames LabCorp. DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen said the company gave different numbers when it reported electronically and manually. She noted the error doesn't affect data on key metrics such as the number of confirmed cases and deaths. LabCorp is one of two nationwide lab chains that are the backbone of COVID testing in the United States.
