Phase 3 Information Updates (Updated 12-8-20)

Protecting the safety and health of our residents continues to be the top priority of the City of Statesville, especially during the public health crisis caused by COVID-19. The City is complying with the State of North Carolina's executive orders designed to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Effective Dec. 11 through Jan. 8, North Carolina is under a modified stay-at-home order. The order requires many businesses such as restaurants, bars, fitness centers, movie theaters, entertainment venues, personal care businesses and some retail stores to close at 10 p.m. each night, with alcohol sales to end at 9 p.m. Take-out and delivery are still allowed after 10 p.m.

PAST UPDATES
UPDATED INFORMATION - 11-23-20
Governor Roy Cooper has issued additional COVID-19 safety measures to tighten mask requirements and enforcement as cases continue to rise rapidly in North Carolina and across the country. Executive Order No. 180 goes into effect on Wednesday, November 25 and runs through Friday, December 11.

"I have a stark warning for North Carolinians today: We are in danger," Governor Cooper said. "This is a pivotal moment in our fight against the coronavirus. Our actions now will determine the fate of many."

In addition to extending Phase 3 capacity limits and safety requirements, the Order tightens the existing statewide mask requirement – making it clear that everyone needs to wear a mask whenever they are with someone who is not from the same household. The Order also adds the mask requirement to several additional settings including any public indoor space even when maintaining 6 feet of distance; gyms even when exercising; all schools public and private; and all public or private transportation when travelling with people outside of the household. 

The Order also requires large retail businesses with more than 15,000 square feet to have an employee stationed near entrances ensuring mask wearing and implementing occupancy limits for patrons who enter.
