The New Bern Historical Society is cancelling its upcoming April events.  In each case, we are working to re-schedule later in the year.

The April 8 Lunch and Learn at the Chelsea and the added presentation on April 7 at the North Carolina History Center have been cancelled.  We are working with Dr. Marchi and the venues to re-schedule his “French Lost Colony in North Carolina” and will announce the dates as soon as possible.  Those with reservations may simply move them to the rescheduled date, may have their money refunded, or may donate to the New Bern Historical Society.    

The April 4 Harry Goodman Battlefield Adventure Day has also been postponed to a likely November date.  Again, we are working with all the groups of re-enactors and volunteers involved to set the date and will announce it as soon as possible.  Those with reservations may again move to the new date, donate the fees to the Historical Society or request a refund.

To re-schedule or request a refund, please contact the Historical Society at 252-638-8558 and they will be able to help.

The Southern Gentlemen (and Ladies) Annual Barbershop Show has been postponed to Oct. 3, 2020. The show, featuring the international championship quartet, Lustre, was scheduled for April 25 at the Grover C. Field Performing Arts Center. Tickets already purchased will be honored when the show takes place or can be refunded at point of purchase. Stay tuned to the Chorus website and Facebook for details.

Due to the well-known shortage of masks and hand sanitizers, CarolinaEast will not be able to provide any to the general public at this time. They need their supply for patients, their visitors, and staff.

Beginning Saturday, March 14, Publix will adjust store and pharmacy hours companywide to close at 8 p.m. nightly until further notice. This will give store teams time to conduct additional preventive sanitation and restock product on shelves. These are just some of the extra measures Publix is taking across its entire operation to safeguard the health and well-being of its customers, associates, and communities.

CarolinaEast Medical Center on whether it has tested any patients for COVID-19: “While we are not going to report on every test that takes place, I assure you that all patients who meet the criteria for testing as recommended by NC Division of Public Health based CDC guidelines are being tested and as of yet, all have been negative. If/when we get a positive result, we will absolutely make that public knowledge. Thank you for reaching out. —Brandy Popp, Manager, Public Relations and Outreach, CarolinaEast Health System
