It looks to me like the City of Durham State of Emergency declaration marked the beginning of a rapid change in behavior: either because Mayor Schewel picked up on an inflection point in larger trends or because residents responded to that announcement.

The City, County and State Stay-at-Home orders seem mostly to have confirmed the behavior that was already taking place, rather than creating a large change through legal mandates.
