Sunrise in the Sandhills Good morning -- it's Monday March 30, 2020 -- For a list of questions and answers about Governor Cooper's Stay-At-Home order, see the previous post. Now,here's your Sunrise News from WIOZ: Governor Roy Cooper's Executive Order #121 – the “stay-at-home” order will go into effect today at 5:00 PM. Gatherings of more than ten people will be prohibited, and some businesses will remain open, such as restaurants that have drive-thru or delivery services, grocery stores, gas stations and convenience stores, ABC stores, hardware stores and others. For an extensive list of frequently asked questions and answers about the order, see our Sunrise In The Sandhills Facebook page. The order will run through at least April 29 – and it is mandatory. The order will be enforced in all of North Carolina's 100 counties. As of Sunday, there were 1104 confirmed cases of COVID-19 throughout North Carolina, up considerably since Saturday. There have been six deaths. Here in Moore County, seven confirmed coronavirus cases have been reported. One Moore County case has been linked to travel outside the state and outside the country. The other seems to be the first local case to be classified as community spread. Community spread means there is at least one case where we don’t know how someone contracted COVID-19. (AP) — Governor Roy Cooper says the first coronavirus-related unemployment payments will be paid starting next week as the state is flooded with tens of thousands of claims. Cooper says the state has received approximately 270-thousand claims in the past two weeks, most of them related to COVID-19 as businesses close or scale back. The state reported bout 22,000 claims on Saturday alone. By comparison, the state received about 7,500 claims in the first two weeks of March. The Cameron Solid Waste Collection site on Cranes Creek Road will be closed temporarily, beginning today. Residents are asked to take their material to one of the six remaining collection sites. The closure is made necessary by the difficulty of maintaining full staffing during the coronavirus pandemic. 16-year-old Joshua Elijah Munnerlyn of Carthage was arrested Friday, charged with attempted first-degree murder in connection with a shooting. He's accused of shooting into an occupied vehicle at the Gold Star Food Mart on Lobelia Road near Vass on February 21. He's held on a 500-thousand-dollar bond, with a court date set for May 5th. A mobile home in Cameron was destroyed by fire on Sunday. SandhillsSentinel-dot-com reports the home was located on the Moore/Lee County line and fire departments from both counties responded. The home was a total loss, but no one was injured. 33-year-old Gerrard Lasalle McLean --- aka “Pimp,” has been arrested and faces drug charges after three people were found dead in Harnett County Saturday morning. McLean is charged with three counts of felony death by distribution in the 27-year-old Brittany Shaw of Spring Lake, 31-year-old Laketa Vinston, and 44 year-old Ervin Bass, both of Bunnlevel. McLean is held in the Harnett County Detention Center on a one-million-dollar bond.
