Coronavirus Precautions

(Fayetteville, N.C.) – We are monitoring the situation as it relates to COVID-19 and are in close coordination with the County’s Department of Public Health concerning how the virus might, if at all, affect our city. 

In the meantime, we’ve instituted more rigorous cleaning protocols on city buses and at all of our public facilities. We’ve also installed more sanitation assets in our public facilities. 

“Should the need arise for a more active posture regarding the possible effects of the COVID-19 virus on our city in the future, we will alert citizens to any change via media outlets, on social media, and our website,” said Mayor Mitch Colvin. “We encourage citizens to bookmark our website (www.FayettevilleNC.gov), follow us on social media, and download the City’s app in Android or Apple stores to stay up to date with city programs and services.” 

We’ve also provided a link to the County’s COVID-19 website on the City website (www.FayettevilleNC.gov) under Around the City, which provides county-related virus information as well as a link to the CDC for the most up-to-date information available on COVID-19. 

At this time the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 in North Carolina is still low and there are no confirmed cases in Cumberland County. Measures citizens can take to help remain healthy include the following:
• Stay home if you are ill
• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water
• Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
• Discard tissues after a single use
• Following the CDC’s travel guidance for nonessential travel, which can be found at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/warning/novel-coronavirus-china
