Local Government

By Press release submission | Mar 26, 2020


City of Asheville issued the following announcement on March 25.

In light of the “Stay Home-Stay Safe” order issued by Buncombe County today, the City of Asheville would like to take a moment to clarify how the various State-, County- and City-level States of Emergency impact its citizens.

On March 12, when the City of Asheville first declared a State of Emergency in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, it expressly consented to having the terms of Buncombe County’s State of Emergency apply within the City’s jurisdiction. What this means for City residents is that they are required to comply with the terms of both the County- and City-issued States of Emergency. This includes the County’s Stay Home-Stay Safe Order.

In addition, residents must comply with any and all directives issued by the State of North Carolina pursuant to its declared State of Emergency.
