Guilford County limits gatherings to no more than 10 people

GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Guilford County Officials announced new restrictions that will go into effect starting March 25 at 5 p.m. 

The new restrictions limit gatherings to no more than 10 people. The Declaration also prohibits the use of public and privately-owned playgrounds. But does exclude playgrounds at private residences.

The County made the decision to enact tighter restrictions based on the input from the Communities Health System Partners in an effort to further slow the spread of the virus and protect the healthcare system and to keep more residents healthy.

Jeff Phillips, the Chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners stated, “We are now entering a challenging phase in a rapidly changing situation. We need every member of our community to follow the CDC recommendations, to cover their sneeze and cough, to stay home when sick, to wash their hands frequently and reduce social interactions.”
