COVID-19 Update

Got plans for lunch? Support one of our local restaurants! Take out and curbside offered at many of our local restaurants now!

Updated: 05/13

At this time, attractions in the Mount Airy area are limiting their selection of services by closing dine-in options or tasting rooms and offering alternatives like curbside pickup or delivery. This is in accordance with state and federal recommendations as well as for the benefit of public health. View restaurants

During this unprecedented event, it is our mission to keep our residents and visitors informed and focus on the health and safety of all those who are interested in coming to Mount Airy “Mayberry” and Surry County.

Effective May 8, 2020, N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper moved the state into Phase 1 of his three-phased approach to lift restrictions and reopen the state for business.

Phase 1

  • more businesses to open (at reduced capacity)
  • still adhering to stay-at-home order
  • closed parks may open
  • gathering of 10 or more people still prohibited

Phase 2

  • could begin May 22th or May 29th
  • lifts stay-at-home order
  • limited reopening of restaurants, bars, and fitness facilities
  • gatherings at entertainment venues (at reduced capacity)

During Phase 1, we encourage visitors to start thinking about travel plans to Visit Mayberry. We hope to be in a position to start welcoming you back when we get into Phase 2 or Phase 3.

As the COVID-19 situation is continuously evolving, we are monitoring it vigilantly. We are working with Federal, state and local governments and health authorities to support efforts to mitigate the spread of this virus and safely begin the re-opening process. During this uncertain time, we know one thing – we value all of you; many of whom are our repeat visitors who have been coming to our City for many years and for our many festivals and events.

We encourage you during this time to Stay Safe, Stay Home, & We Can’t Wait to Welcome You Back Soon. 

During this time, our hearts and thoughts are with those who have been affected by this. We send our deep appreciation to those in our community, the healthcare industry, and first responders who are working on the front lines to mitigate the spread and impact of this virus. Our community and its people are resilient; we will persevere through this and are optimistic about the future.
