Greenville Mayor P.J. Connelly issued a Stop the Spread Order that began on Thursday, March 26, at 5:00 p.m. in order to further combat the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The order directs all City residents to stay at home and limit movements outside of their homes to only essential needs. The order is valid through April 10, 2020, but it will be regularly reviewed and evaluated for revisions, amendments, or extensions accordingly, based on recommendations by public health and emergency management officials.

Please note that the City's Order is the one that still applies to all Greenville residents and businesses until its expiration on April 10. When it expires, the Governor's Order will apply to all Greenville residents until its expiration.
