COVID-19 Resources

The safety, health and well-being of our community is our focus during this time of uncertainty. We can all play an important role in slowing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and limit the impact on local businesses.

There is no doubt the current health crisis has temporarily changed the way we do business, but our commitment to the continued prosperity of Stanly County citizens remains unchanged.  We hope these resources will help business owners reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our community.  Please reach out to our office if we can assist you.

Resources are listed newest to oldest.
