Emergency Directives Rescinded by Chief Justice Paul Newby

Chief Justice Paul Newby issued a new order on June 21, 2021 that rescinded the order issued on June 7, 2021. Last Friday, Governor Cooper signed into law Senate Bill 255 that codified the essential tools included in the June 7, 2021 order. These legislative changes render that order unnecessary. As of the date of today’s order, none of the Chief Justice’s COVID-19 related emergency directives remain in place.
