The novel coronavirus and resulting COVID-19 disease is a rapidly unfolding situation in North Carolina and across the globe. The effects of the outbreak are likely to be widespread, and will disproportionately affect the most vulnerable among us. With this in mind, NCNG is compiling information and resources related to the outbreak, as well as philanthropy’s response. If there are resources you suggest we add to this page, please let us know.
North Carolina’s Division of Public Health hosts a website with up-to-date information related to the outbreak. This includes information and resources for all sectors of the state, including schools and colleges, businesses, families, long-term care facilities and more. The state’s response efforts are also noted on this site.
