|Duke Energy nuclear education is hosting a holiday event filled with cheer for the entire family!|
Join us for some holiday fun mixed with a hint of science as we make atom and snowflake ornaments out of Borax. Then, challenge your friends and family to see who can make the tallest tree using only toothpicks and gum drops!
Finally, we’ll have a very special guest read “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” to close out our event. So grab some hot chocolate or your favorite holiday treat and join us on Saturday, Dec. 5.
Note: We’ve set aside two separate times for you to join us. Simply choose the best time that works for you when registering.
We encourage participants to make the ornaments with us live. We’ll email everyone a materials list a few days before the event. Register Now!
We look forward to you joining us. If you have any questions, reply to this email. Sincerely,Duke Energy nuclear education

How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays
Best practice guidelines for holiday safety
Both the CDC and NC Department of Health and Human Services have released guidelines for Thanksgiving safety, discussing gatherings, food handling, and travel. Check out the NCDHHS Thanksgiving guidance here and theCDC guidance here.
A reminder that last week, NC Governor Roy Cooper lowered the mass gathering limit to 10 people via Executive Order 176. The order went into effect on Friday, November 13 and will be in place through Friday, December 4. The Order does not change the reduced capacity limits for certain businesses that have already been laid out. For more on this, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
SlowCOVIDNC Exposure App from the NC Department of Health and Human Services:
SlowCOVIDNC is the official exposure notification app of North Carolina. The app is anonymous and does not collect, store or share personal information or location data. More than 150,000 people have downloaded it, but the more who use it the better it helps slow the spread of COVID-19. SlowCOVIDNC alerts users when they may have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The app relies on users to anonymously submit their positive result to notify others. Learn more from NCDHHS here.

Mecklenburg County Farm Bureau approved donations to four local charities during this economic hard time. The Huntersville Farm Bureau office chose the Ada Jenkins Center. Christopher and Kate Westmoreland delivered the check to the Center on May 5, 2020.
On March 27, Governor Roy Cooper issued Executive Order 121, a statewide Stay at Home Order beginning Monday, March 30, 2020 at 5 p.m. until April 29, 2020. This order directs people to stay at home except to visit essential businesses, to exercise outdoors or to help a family member. Specifically, the order bans gatherings of more than 10 people and directs everyone to physically stay at least six feet apart from others. For more information about Executive Order 121, read the FAQsOpen PDF. Executive Order 121 permits essential businesses to remain open. These include:
- Restaurants that provide take-out, drive-thru, or delivery
- Grocery stores
- ABC stores and beer and wine stores
- Doctors and other healthcare providers
- Hardware stores
- Post offices
- Office supply stores
- Gas stations and convenience stores
- Veterinarians and pet supply stores
- Hotels, airports, buses, taxis, and rideshare services
- Places of worship
- Child care providers (that are following the required NCDHHS procedures)
For a full list of essential businesses, please see the Executive Order 121Open PDF. Governor Cooper reminded North Carolinians to show restraint in buying groceries and supplies.
Community Events and Mass Gatherings
NCDHHS also recommends that organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events throughout North Carolina. These events may include but are not limited to conferences, sporting events, faith-based organizations, and concerts.
Learn more from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about planning mass gatherings or large community events.
Community and Faith-Based Organizations
Community- and faith-based organizations, whose members may include high-risk populations, should plan for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in their local communities.
While regular faith-based gatherings are an important part of many North Carolinians’ lives, it is important to protect high-risk individuals from potential exposure to COVID-19.
Religious organizations can consider alternatives to mass gatherings to support their congregations’ social and spiritual well-being. Consider options like connecting by phone, using other technologies that support social distancing and/or facilitating small group meetings to ensure that people at high risk of complications from COVID-19 are less likely to be exposed to the virus.
Mass transit operators should maximize opportunities for cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces. People should avoid using mass transit (e.g. buses, trains) while sick.
