Previous Updates to the Stay-At-Home Order

In light of concerns regarding the community spread of COVID-19, City of Durham Mayor Steve Schewel and Durham County Board of Commissioners Chair (BOCC) Wendy Jacobs have combined and amended their Stay-At-Home Orders for all residents to further help stop the spread of this virus.
 
The order was originally combined on April 4, 2020. It has been amended three more times since: April 17, April 24 and May 15 and will be amended again on May 22. According to Mayor Schewel and Chair Jacobs, the purpose of this act is to strengthen and clarify the previous Orders' provisions by unifying the City and County Stay-At-Home Orders into a single order to reduce confusion and offer clearer guidance to businesses and residents.

 

The purpose of the May 15 change is to simplify some portions of the current order and to bring other sections more in line with Governor Roy Cooper’s statewide Executive Order 138. North Carolina has entered statewide Phase I reopening of activities that have been closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
