As we continue to navigate the rapidly evolving situation related to COVID-19, we want to make sure we are connecting members and providing timely and up-to-date-information. We have been in touch with centers, regulators and other states to better understand how they are approaching this unprecedented time.
Closing Your Center? Be Sure to Let the State Know!
An important reminder: if you plan on closing your Center, you need to inform the state by emailing Heather Carter at the Division of Aging and Adult Services (firstname.lastname@example.org). As of 10:25 am Friday morning March 20th, the state notified us that 25 centers around the state are closed.
North Carolina's Vaccination Plan and Executive Summary
North Carolina’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan builds on the foundation of the state’s overall goals and pillars of response to the pandemic: Prevention, Testing, Tracing, Isolation and Quarantine. North Carolina took early and aggressive action to slow the spread of the virus, built statewide capacity for testing, PPE supplies and contract tracing, developed hospital surge plans, and promoted aggressive prevention strategies.
The ultimate goal is to immunize everyone who is eligible for and wants a COVID-19 vaccine. Click here for a copy of the statewide plan, including an executive summary.
