North Carolina inauguration, swearing-in for Council of State set

While inaugural activities will look different due to the pandemic, Governor Roy Cooper and the Council of State will be sworn in on Jan. 9, 2021 at 10 a.m. The swearings-in will be followed by Cooper’s second inaugural address.

The inauguration will be carried live by UNC-TV and available to other outlets. Due to the ongoing pandemic and Cooper’s executive orders limiting mass gatherings, attendance will be limited to participants, their families, staff and pool media.

Additional details on the ceremony, schedule and details for accessing the broadcast and media coverage will be shared at a later date.

The Raleigh Junior League previously announced that the 2021 Inaugural Ball will be delayed due to the pandemic.
