Cash Back? At least two insurance companies are offering auto insurers ‘refunds’.  Yes.  Americans are staying home and driving less amid the COVID-19 outbreak, which has led to fewer crashes and insurance claims.  Allstate customers will receive 15 percent of their monthly premium for April and May. And a smaller company, American Family Insurance (AFI), will be issuing ‘relief’ refunds as well.   https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/april/these-car-insurance-companies-are-refunding-tons-of-cash-to-customers-during-covid-19-crisis

Infections from the COVID-19 virus could total 250,000 by June 1 in North Carolina …if state stay-at-home restrictions are extended until then, according to public-health researchers from Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill. That’s the good news?

As dire as that sounds considering the case count was 2,870 as of Monday morning, that’s the positive outlook from researchers based on modeling conducted over the weekend. Researchers cautioned that if the stay-at-home restrictions are lifted April 29, the infection rate could surge to 750,000. Stay at home as much as possible and practicing social distancing (the 6 foot rule) is working at least in NC…



Snitch Line??  The Winston-Salem Police Department has posted an online form where residents can report suspected violations of stay-home or social-distancing restrictions.

Residents are asked to give their name, address, phone number and email address as well the locations where they believe people are violating the restrictions.

You can find the form at cityofws.org/2684/Report-Stay-At-Home-Order-Violation.
