It's a miracle! Active cases declined right before July 4th weekend and it's even in large print in case anyone misses it. Quick recovery!


I heard that there are 3 restaurants on EI closed down due to an outbreak. The cover up is crazy! Whatever happened to journalistic integrity?


NC COVID a hotzone, look at fishing pier webcam at Emerald Isle now and see the hundreds of people crammed on beach and under pier. Little to no social distancing. Probably a great place to contact trace for all those who are there this weekend over the next 14 days... of course most of them will be taking sunburn and possible contamination back to their home towns and will not be available. Dollars over common sense..blame the local officials not the idiots on beach. "They knowth not what do they do!"


Where are our mayors on the crystal coast? Oh, the AB mayor Cooper is surfing.


People’s denial of the dangers of COVID reminds me of drunk driving. It is okay to kill yourself but all too often you take innocent lives with you.


I hope everyone makes a lot of money this weekend, you're going to need it when everyone has to close there doors again because people are dying. This is really stupid!!


Perfect comparison Seatiger!
