Mecklenburg County is reducing its already short list of in-person services effective Jan. 15, 2021.
To support the three-week COVID-19 Directive imploring people to stay home announced by Public Health Director Gibbie Harris Tuesday, County Manager Dena R. Diorio says the County needs to model the directive's intent for the community.
"We are basically going back to where County services were during the Stay-at-Home Order last spring," says Diorio. "Our COVID numbers are going up, not down, so for the next three weeks, only essential and mandated services that cannot be performed virtually will be provided in-person."
