Mayor Jerry Peterman has issued a Proclamation ordering all individuals living within the City of Graham to “stay at home” effective at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2020. His decision for his Proclamation is a result of various conversations with state and local public health officials, leaders from local hospitals, and mayors and municipal managers advising local leaders to reinforce safety measures for their residents. The Proclamation is valid through Thursday, April 16, 2020 and will be regularly reviewed and evaluated and may be revised, amended, or extended accordingly, based upon existing evidence and recommendations by the Public Health Director and Alamance Emergency Management.
