 March 19, 2020
On March 12, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam declared a State of Emergency in Virginia in response to the continuing spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19.  Due to the highly contagious nature of the virus, "social distancing" (keeping a distance of at least six (6) feet from others) is being recommended.
As per the Governor's statement on March 17, 2020, Virginians are asked to avoid non-essential public gatherings of more than 10 people.
He also ordered the closing of all schools from March 16, 2020, until March 30, 2020.
Due to these guidelines, all Mecklenburg County Government functions have been affected and if you have business with a County Agency, you should contact that office through the County Switchboard at 434-738-6191.  Many of the offices are limiting exposure and are asking that all patrons stay at least six (6) feet away.  Currently, the County has not declared a State of Emergency as we currently have no confirmed cases of the virus.  This, of course, could change so feel free to check back for updates due to the fluidity of the situation.
