COVID-19 INFORMATION

August 13, 2021

The Town of Fuquay-Varina is concerned about the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in our community as the Delta variant has become the predominant strain in North Carolina and the United States. We know that cases are increasing rapidly because the Delta variant is more infectious than earlier strains of COVID-19. The troubling trends the Wake County Health Department has identified include rapid increases in cases, higher positivity rates, increased hospitalization and ICU beds space in our hospitals approaching capacity. This is not where we want to be as a community.

While the Town of Fuquay-Varina is not putting a mask mandate in place at this time, we are encouraging individuals to wear masks when groups of people not from the same household gather indoors. We support businesses requiring a mask to be worn within their facility just as the Town of Fuquay-Varina has done at our facilities.

We want to thank every citizen for doing their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by practicing the three W’s, staying home when sick, and considering vaccination when eligible to do so.

The Town of Fuquay-Varina continues to monitor the data and trends of this ever-changing situation and will make adjustments to emergency declaration standards as necessary.

August 4, 2021

In response to new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), beginning August 5 and until further notice, face coverings are required indoors for Town employees and visitors (ages 5 and up) to Town of Fuquay-Varina facilities regardless of vaccination status.

On July 27, the Centers for Disease Control recommended that everyone in areas designated as substantial spread wear a mask in public indoor settings, even those people who are fully vaccinated, to help prevent the spread of the delta variant and protect others. Wake County is now an area with substantial community spread.

Currently, there are no plans to cancel indoor or outdoor Town of Fuquay-Varina events. For indoor events, Town staff and patrons will be required to wear masks.  For outdoor events, there are no current plans to require masks.

 

Additionally, there are no immediate plans to reinstate virtual-only Town Board meetings. The plan is to continue monitoring CDC guidance and adjust as needed. Therefore, the public remains invited to attend meetings in person, however the Town will continue to limit capacity to 50% of seating availability on a first-come basis. A mask will be required unless addressing the Town Board at the podium. As an alternative to attending in person, public meetings can be viewed on Facebook and You Tube.  Learn about virtual participation at www.fuquay-varina.org/boardmeeting.




Further Easing of Restrictions - Update June 11, 2021
When does this Order take effect?
Executive Order 220 takes effect on June 11, 2021, 5:00 PM and will remain in effect until July 30, 2021 at 5:00 p.m., unless repealed, replaced, or rescinded.

The Order extends EO 215 with some additional measures.
 • Face covering requirements are lifted in most settings. (See details below addressing where these requirements are still applicable.)
• Capacity restrictions are lifted in all settings.
• Social distancing requirements have been lifted in all settings. (For example, there is no longer a requirement that tables in restaurants be spaced out.) 
Nothing prevents people from continuing to wear face coverings, which are recommended for unvaccinated people and for all people in large venues. Employers, business owners, and local governments may require face coverings and social distancing.
• Because children are still unvaccinated and can easily spread COVID-19, face coverings are still required in child care, children’s day camps, and children’s overnight camps. Nothing in today’s Executive Order changes the StrongSchoolsNC Toolkit requirement for face coverings in schools.
• The CDC has advised that face coverings should continue to be required in several health care settings, in transportation settings like airports and bus stations, in correctional and detention facilities, and at homeless service providers. This Order continues those face covering requirements.
• Local governments can implement stricter COVID-19 face covering, capacity, and social distancing requirements. 

Get vaccinated when it's your turn.
