We care about the residents, workers and visitors of Buncombe County. We join you in a desire to return to our lives but recognize that extra precautions will be necessary for some time.
(Update: 8/18/21) - Effective immediately, masks are required indoors at all public places in Buncombe County - including Asheville - regardless of vaccination status. This order remains in effect through September 30, 2021, and may be extended based on data trends. In addition, the National Park Service, which includes the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, has issued a mask mandate for visitors and staff inside all NPS buildings, as well as outdoors in high traffic areas, such as narrow trails and overlooks. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
