Mint Hill Residents,

Mecklenburg County has been under a Stay at Home order since March 24. Believe it or not, it has only been 10 days. We are still looking at another 4 weeks. There is still so much that is unknown about how the COVID-19 spreads. It’s believed it spreads person to person through droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Here is what we can do in the next 30 days to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community.



• Listen and follow directions of State and local authorities.

• If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. Contact your medical provider.

• If your children are sick, keep them at home. Contact your medical provider

• If someone in your household has tested positive for the coronavirus, keep the entire household at home. Do not go to work. Do not go to the grocery store. Contact your medical provider.

• If you are an older person, stay at home and away from other people.

• If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition that can put you at an increased risk (for example, a condition that impairs your lung or heart function or weakens your immune system), stay home and away from other people.

We need to continue to take radical measures to protect ourselves. The next four weeks are going to be extremely challenging for our country and our community. Don’t leave home unless you need to perform essential activities as outlined by the Governor’s Executive Order.

Help flatten the curve. Stay home. The life you save may be your own.

Stay Safe. Stay Well. Stay Informed. Stay home.

Brad Simmons

Mint Hill Mayor
