COVID-19 HOURS OF OPERATION
From: Adrian Lowery, Executive Director
RE: State of North Carolina (Executive Order NO. 121)
Date: March 30, 2020
This memorandum is in reference to Executive Order NO. 121 issued by North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper. The Executive Order is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Executive Order is a "stay at home" order for the entire state of North Carolina and it goes into effect at 5 pm, Monday, March 30th.
The stay at home order provides for essential businesses to continue to operate while prioritizing social distancing measures. The Order has the force of the law and will be enforced in all 100 counties statewide. The Order directs people to stay at home except to visit essential businesses, the order bans gatherings of more than 10 people and directs everyone to physically stay at least six feet apart from others.
The HACL is considered an essential business, based on guidance from the US Department of Homeland Security (CISA Cyber-Infrastructure). The HACL would be classified as Essential Governmental Operations and thus will continue to operate. Our goal is to continue to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing, while taking measures to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
The following changes in HACL Operations will go into effect at 5 pm, Monday March 30th:
1. Hours of Operations- The HACL will temporarily adjust operating hours.
a. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday-9 am to 4 pm.
b. Fridays-9 am to 1 pm.
The HACL Lobby will remain open to the public during the modified hours. However, the HACL will conduct no Face to Face meetings. Residents are encouraged to send documents by mail or email as much as possible.
