Mecklenburg County Issues a Stay at Home Order

What this order means to you?

“Mecklenburg County has issued a Stay at Home Order beginning Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. in order to further combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This order directs all Mecklenburg County residents to shelter at home and limit movements outside of their homes beyond essential needs. This order is valid through April 16, 2020 but will be regularly reviewed and evaluated and may be revised, amended, or extended accordingly, based upon recommendations by the Mecklenburg County Public Health Director and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Emergency Management.
