March 27, 2020—Late this afternoon, Governor Roy Cooper issued a “Stay-At-Home” Order for our citizens in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The North Carolina Home Builders Association (NCHBA) fully supports the Governor’s action and thanks him for including housing construction as an “essential business”’ in his executive order.
“Governor Cooper is to be commended for his positive actions to protect our citizens and our economy during this crisis,” said Outer Banks builder, Mark Martin, NCHBA’s 2020 President. “He understands the vital role that the residential construction industry plays in the success of the economy of our state. Furthermore, the Governor understands that our industry can keep people employed while honoring safe work and social distancing guidelines published by our public health officials.”
