The Watauga County Commissioners will hold a virtual meeting today and COVID-19 matters are heavy on the agenda.

Jennifer Greene, Director of AppHealthCare, is scheduled to give a community update on COVID-19.

A discussion regarding current county COVID-19 restrictions is scheduled, and it is expected that it will include talking about steps moving forward. During the May 5th meeting, the Board took action on a plan to address easing restrictions when Phase 2 approaches. Phase 2 could occur on Friday as Governor Roy Cooper's current Executive Order expires. As of Tuesday morning, the Governor has given no definite indication if he will move to Phase 2 or extend the current Order.

Also among the items on the Board's agenda, is a discussion on Summer Camps and Youth Sports Programs through the Watauga County Park and Recreation that have been closed due to COVID-19.
