March 25, 2020 Emergency Meeting of City Council
On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Reidsville City Council unanimously agreed to implement a Go to Work/Stay at Home Social Distancing Order BUT to stay or delay the execution of that Order. This will allow the City's legal counsel, public safety officials, the City Manager/staff and local health officials time to craft the wording of that Order. It will require a second meeting of the Council, which has yet to be determined, to review and approve the document and decide the timeline to implement the Order. The actual meeting was streamed via Facebook Live by Rockingham Update. RockinghamNow was also present at the meeting.

CURRENTLY THE CITY OF REIDSVILLE IS UNDER NO RESTRICTIONS OTHER THAN THOSE DONE BY GOVERNOR COOPER.

Below is an interview by Mark Childrey of Star News with Mayor Jay Donecker  as they discussed the actions taken at the March 25th meeting. Star News is planning to do weekly updates with the Mayor while this crisis continues.
