Yesterday, the Wake County school board voted to have PreK-3 students and K-12 special-education students resume daily in-person classes in two weeks. Additionally, students in grades 4 through 12 will begin a three-week rotation of in-person and online classes.
Earlier this week, NCDHHS launched Find My Vaccine Group, an online tool that helps North Carolinians figure out when they will be eligible to receive their COVID vaccine. If you’re eligible to receive a vaccine, I encourage you to get one as soon as possible to protect your health and to protect others. https://findmygroup.nc.gov
I am a longtime proud member of Democratic Women of Wake County. It is always a pleasure to join them in fellowship. I applaud their service to the community and the active role they take in supporting women who lead the fight in achieving equality for all.
In case you missed Governor Roy Cooper‘s press conference yesterday, the Governor extended Phase 3 of the state’s three-phased reopening plan, with a modified stay-at-home order. That order includes a curfew that requires that people stay home from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Phase 3 also limits social gatherings indoors to 10 people and outdoor gatherings to 25 people. Combating this virus will take all of us, working together to limit the spread. And don’t forget the 3 W’s—wear a mask, wait six feet apart, and wash your hands. https://www.newsobserver.com/ne…/local/article248796485.html
With all of the news in the past week, I want to make sure you’re aware I’ve been appointed to the Science, Space, and Technology Committee in the House. I’m looking forward to advancing the work from Wake County and the Research Triangle Park in the committee. And don’t forget to follow my official media – Congresswoman Deborah Ross – for updates on committee work.
I was particularly moved by Amanda Gorman’s beautiful poem. Her voice is an inspiration to all young Americans and I look forward to seeing her success.
