The past few weeks have been challenging for our community. COVID-19 and the consequent changes have had a tremendous impact on so many individuals, children, and families.
The Board of County Commissioners and County Administration appreciate everyone who continue to provide services to help our neighbors in need. Many are all uniting for the good of our community.
During these challenging times, we want to continue to refer everyone to available information and resources regarding COVID-19. Please share and refer others to the information below.
You can click here to go to the Davie County Government Home Page where you will find “buttons” for Coronavirus Information (daily data, state orders, timeline of events of action taken to date, frequently asked questions, continued strategies to mitigate COVID-19 in our community), and a listing of County Operations. County staff continue to work diligently to provide services to our citizens in the midst of our current challenges. A COVID-19 hotline is staffed by Public Health Nurses who can be reached at 336-753-6750 or 336-753-6550.

For more information on this, please visit: https://www.ncdps.gov.
