This is Mayor Steve Smith. Our Community, State and Nation continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 Virus. It is expected that all 100 counties in North Carolina will have a case of COVID-19 by the end of this week. Your town government and town employees are working to ensure we are all safe.
In order to limit Community Spread of the virus; Topsail Beach has limited rentals, closed all public parking, limited the use of Bush Marina and closed all parks. Your town hall is operating but we have closed our doors to reduce COVID-19 exposure to our town employees. Please call, email or use the drop box for assistance.
We are asking that you continue to follow the CDC guidelines. Please practice social distancing (6 feet or more apart) and wash your hands. These two practices have been shown to have a significant impact on controlling the spread of COVID-19. The CDC also recommends limiting gatherings; however, if you need to meet others in a group, please keep the group under 10 people. Remember SOCIAL DISTANCING only works if it is practiced.
