Governor Roy Cooper has issued Executive Order 188 which takes effect January 8, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. This order extends all elements of Executive Order 181 until January 29, 2021. As a result of this Order, North Carolina remains on a Modified Stay at Home Order after a rapid increase in North Carolina’s key COVID-19 trends. The Order requires people to stay at home between 10 pm and 5 am. This order also extends the capacity limitations, indoor and outdoor gathering limits, mask requirements, and other public health restrictions put in place under previous executive orders. The Order requires restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, personal care businesses and more to close at 10 pm. Travel to and from work; to obtain food, medical care, fuel or social services; or to take care of a family member is exempted. Read more in this Frequently Asked Questions Document. Visitors to all facilities in Village Park are required to wear face coverings if they are within 6 feet of another person or are indoors. We would like to remind all Park visitors that anyone who is symptomatic with cough or fever or feels unwell should stay at home. Mass gatherings outdoors of more than 50 people are prohibited. Mass gatherings of 10 people within indoor facilities are also prohibited. The Village Staff is required to sanitize playground equipment and shelter facilities. For this reason, all visitors will be required to vacate these areas 1 hour prior to park closure. We are continuing some measures and guidelines to ensure the safety of our community. We have postponed all Committee meetings through the month of January. We are still limiting public access to Village Hall unless the situation is critical. If you have a concern or wish to inquire about a rental, please contact us by phone or by email. We also require face coverings for anyone who enters the Village Hall either to conduct business or to attend a meeting. We can only take reservations for our community center or our shelter that meet the gathering guidelines at this time. We will continue to use our website and our face book page to disperse helpful information to our residents. We encourage our citizens to follow the directives and guidance of local and national health authorities to do all possible to safeguard against this virus. We will continue to post updates as available.
