Mecklenburg County Issues Stay-at-Home Order
Please be aware that Mecklenburg County issued a stay-at-home order this afternoon. It goes into effect this Thursday (March 26) at 8 a.m., and lasts through April 16. You can read the full statement on the Mecklenburg County Government website for more details.
According to the "Essential Businesses and Operations" section of the county's proclamation, educational institutions may remain open "for purposes of facilitating distance learning, performing critical research related to COVID-19, or performing essential functions, provided that social distancing of six-feet per person is maintained to the greatest extent possible," so our most essential workers can continue to come to campuses as needed.
Students and all other employees should follow the county order, stay at home, and not come to campus. However, our teams are still here to support you: We continue to provide as many services as possible remotely, via phone and email. See the college website for a complete directory of departments, or call our Information Center during business hours at 704.330.2722. Please reach out to us if we can help in any way.
