Prayer #392: For North Carolina's Planned COVID Restriction Changes June 1
Governor Roy Cooper announced today that, effective June 1st, there is a plan to relax North Carolina's COVID restrictions further. Restrictions limiting capacity at restaurants, bars, and concert venues will be lifted if the COVID decline continues in the state. Only the state-wide mask mandate would remain. "With increasing vaccinations and ongoing work to slow the spread," Cooper said, "we'll be able to lift all mandatory social distancing, capacity, and mass gathering restrictions by June 1." Presently, 37.6% of North Carolinians are partially vaccinated for COVID-19, and 27.6% are partially vaccinated.
Let's pray that this trend of COVID decline in North Carolina continues and that indeed, by June 1st, the restrictions, other than masking, can be lifted in our state. Pray for the revitalization of businesses and organizations throughout North Carolina that have suffered economically during the COVID restrictions lasting well over a year.
Ps. 68:19: "Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation."
