COVID-19 Update

Updated May 22, 2020

In conjunction with Gov. Roy Cooper’s plan to reopen the state in phases, the Town of Holly Springs is beginning to reopen facilities with safeguards and social distancing guidelines to protect staff and visitors:

Effective Monday, May 11 - Town Hall, the Law Enforcement Center, fire stations, and the Public Works facility reopen to the public.

Effective Monday, May 18 - Hunt Recreation Center, Holly Springs Cultural Center and the service window at Bass Lake Park reopen to the public for administrative purposes only. These include registering for programs and reserving facilities. Parks and greenways are open.

Ensuring Safety of Visitors and Staff

Those who visit town facilities in phase 1 of the state plan must abide by social distancing guidelines. The town has installed additional protective measures to help keep everyone safe, including social distancing floor stickers in public areas and Plexiglas barriers and other distancing devices near service counters.

Staff working at service counters will wear face masks and gloves. It is recommended that visitors also wear face coverings. However, they are not required to enter town facilities.    

Although walk-in customers are accepted, the town highly encourages residents to continue using online services and the utility payment drop box in the parking lot.
