More than 1,700 North Carolina correctional officers left their jobs in 2020 — up 14% from one year earlier, and the biggest jump in more than a decade. A number of issues contributed, but COVID-19 and its spread throughout the prison system likely was a big reason.
Full-time undergraduate enrollment in the University of North Carolina System remained virtually flat from fall 2019 to fall 2020 as COVID-19 changed students’ plans and the universities’ financial situations.
Most students who attend colleges and universities in the Charlotte area will not be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 when they return to class this fall.
