Please stay safe and follow official government guidelines during this public health crisis.

As the number of positive COVID-19 cases continues to rise in Wake County, so are concerns that the virus could overwhelm our local healthcare system. To help prevent that from happening, Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford has signed a proclamation that puts a stay-at-home order in effect on Friday, March 27, at 5pm:

The goal of the proclamation is for Wake County residents to stay home and away from others who are not immediate members of their family or household. By restricting contact, the county hopes to reduce the rate at which COVID-19 is infecting residents.

All Raleigh Council committee, boards and commissions, Council district meetings, and other public meetings are canceled through April 30.

Raleigh City Council is discussing logistics for April Council meetings.
