Asheville Cares Stay Safe Pledge


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. 

North Carolina Mask Order

Per Governor's orders, face coverings are no longer required in public (except for public transportation and in other settings*); however, individual businesses may continue to require patrons to wear masks indoors. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding! 

Asheville Cares Stay Safe Pledge
Our pledge is a shared commitment with you to keep each other healthy. By following updated recommended public health guidelines and showing our respect to the people around us, we can minimize the spread of COVID-19 and keep our doors open. Together we will take the precautions necessary for all of us to stay safe.

For the latest COVID-19 updates for Asheville, please reference the North Carolina Department of Health and, more locally, the Buncombe County Department of Health.

*Face coverings are required indoors for public transportation, hospitals and other healthcare settings, long-term care settings, childcare settings, schools, camps, correctional facilities and homeless shelters.
