Statement by Catawba County Commissioner Randy Isenhower regarding Governor Cooper’s statewide Stay at Home Executive Order
Published: March 27, 2020
As Chairman of the Catawba County Board of Commissioners, county staff and I had a conference call with the mayors and managers of our municipalities, The Chamber and the Economic Development Corporation shortly after the Governor issued his statewide Stay at Home Order Friday.
I can assure you all local governments in Catawba County are cooperating with the directions as set out in the Governor’s Order. We are also working together on means to combat this virus, and we will continue to collaborate moving forward.
When we are faced with challenging times, we Catawbans take on the burden of finding solutions for our community. We have repeatedly stepped up to work our way to better days together. This is at the very heart of who we are.
It is time once again for us to step up and show what we’re made of. We must each take personal responsibility for helping lessen the burden of the coronavirus pandemic on our healthcare system, our communities, and each other.
I urge you to take the Governor’s Stay at Home Order seriously. These restrictions are mandated not just to protect you, but also to protect the many essential workers who are continuing to provide critical services to citizens throughout the county and state. The sooner we can slow the progression of this disease, the more quickly we can get our community and economy back on track.
By looking out for one another as we always do, I have no doubt we will once again demonstrate the inherent resilience that carries Catawba County through uncertain times.
