On Monday night, March 30, Guilford County government issued a second, amended, Stay-at-home order that clarified some aspects of a previous order and that put in place even tighter restrictions meant to help reduce the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
Chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners Jeff Phillips summarized the changes in a YouTube video that the county posted with the release of the amended March 30 order that expands and clarifies new regulations in regard to activities such as funerals and church services. It also offers additional guidance for auto dealers, realtors and others.
According to Guilford County officials, the new order also aligns Guilford County more closely to a statewide Stay-at-home order issued earlier this week by NC Governor Roy Cooper.
The countywide order expires on Thursday, April 16 – though county officials may decide to extend it to a later date if necessary.
“We need to protect each other in Guilford County and I am asking for your help to do so,” Phillips said in the video.
Realtors are one group affected by the order.
“We clarified that all face-to-face interactions should be avoided and that open houses are not allowed through the duration of the order,” Phillips said, adding, “A buyer walk through can be held if an offer to purchase contract is in place, and again at the time of closing.”
In-person auto sales aren’t permitted but auto sales can still be conducted online.
Under the new order, churches and organizations that provide shelters or food banks – or that are supporting blood drives – are still allowed to offer those essential services as laid out in the original order.
Funerals are limited to 10 people; however, a crew may assemble to broadcast or stream the service to a remote audience. That audience must still adhere to social distancing guidelines.
The full order, which goes into great detail regarding the new regulations, can be found at www.guilfordcountync.gov.
Phillips instructed that, if members of the public find any differences between the state’s stay at home order and the county’s, the stricter policy should be followed.
Can a realtor show my house?
What about outdoor farm work and animal fence construction ? Are these allowed?
The Government now denies my right to attend church and learn about my God the way I’m commanded to in the Bible. Is this truly America anymore? Where is my freedom to practice religion…….
Are you a complete idiot? Stay home and read your Bible.
Amen dude u don’t need to go to church to be religious
“Wherever 2 or 3 are gathered in my name….” Suck it up and meditate, pray and read your Bible! Where exactly does it say you are commanded to attend church?
We are so fortunate to have zoom Voxer and so many apps where church can be conducted in a meeting setting or view online. This to me is great and you can still tied your church through cash app.
Church is very important to me as well, but God is opening doors to another wY for us to gather and take the time to be with out families while he guides the professionals to find a cure. To something that was not created by him, but by man.
I drove by Lowe’s Home improvement on Battleground at about 10:00 this morning and the parking lot was packed! Were all those sisters and brothers on essential business or just generally ignoring the stay at home guidelines as a show of disregard for the rest of us?
The LORD knows where we are and HE is with us all the time, even in our homes. HE gives us peace in times when men takes it away from us. Lets hope that this is not the end of mankind. Peace with ourselves and others will move the universe forward and kept the earth turning.
Car dealerships like battlegroundkia are still conducting face to face car sales, test drives and continue to put peoples health at risk. Yesterday they had a showroom with salesman over 20 people at 1 time. I went for a part for my car
Battleground Kia here in Greensboro is still opened. Its a car dealership and it still is conducting onsite sales. Today, there are several appointments scheduled to test drive a cars. The show room is opened to customers. I have reported this issue to everyone including the mayor’s office. I was a fan of Battleground Kia but I can’t believe that they are willing to put their employees lives and families in danger just to get a little money. I bet the owner isn’t at the showroom.
