COVID-19 in Mecklenburg County: 1377 cases diagnosed, 37 related deaths
Mecklenburg County residents are under a County Stay at Home Order and a State of North Carolina Stay at Home order. Both orders require residents to:
- Remain at home and avoid non-essential contact with others.
- Limit trips for groceries, gas, and other essentials.
- If you must go out, stay at least 6 feet from others at all times.
- What is or is not allowed?
EVERYONE, even people who are young and healthy, must stay home (except for activities considered essential) and practice physical social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. If there is a question about which Order to follow, the Order that is the most restrictive in any circumstance should be followed.

Social Distancing Works
If each infected person spreads the virus to two other people, the chain of infection grows exponentially. Avoiding even one social transmission early can significantly reduce the number of infections. It is possible that an infected person can infect others before they show symptoms.
