Full speed ahead in Charlotte

North Carolina Governor Cooper just opened the doors for Georgia’s first game of the season.

Today, Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. shared an update on the state’s COVID-19 progress. Throughout the pandemic, state officials have taken a data-driven approach and have been guided by the science in making decisions. Following yesterday’s guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that fully vaccinated individuals can safely do most activities without wearing a mask or the need to social distance from others, the state will remove its indoor mask mandate for most settings. Additionally, the state will lift all mass gathering limits and social distancing requirements. These changes are now in effect as of 1:30 PM today.

I’m happy, but not as happy as the two schools’ athletic directors, who just saw the gate receipts skyrocket.

    The game was going to get moved if this didn’t happen. Or so I’m told by a friend high up in clemson athletics

  6. Bluto, I’m happy too…what will raise me up to elated status will be if we beat the Vegas odds and leave Charlotte with a victory. If that happens we might be looking at a magical season…Fingers crossed 🤞

    So that’s what happened to the fat girl from the Facts of Life. She’s the Human Service Secretary for N.C.
