Joines Extends “Appointment Only” Access to City Buildings

Mayor Allen Joines has extended through Feb. 28 his order restricting in-person access to city buildings only to those with appointments. The extension takes effect at 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28.

On Jan. 7, Joines ordered that members of the public access city services “by use of City Link, drive-thru services, online platforms, and other electronic means, including, but not limited to, telephone and email, where possible.” 

Joines issued the Jan. 7 order to limit city employees’ exposure to COVID-19 in order to ensure continued delivery of city services. That order is due to expire Jan. 31. However, the positive test rate for COVID-19 in Forsyth County has continued to rise during January, and stood at 38.2 percent on Wednesday, Jan. 26.

Joines issued his latest order as the 12th amendment to the State of Emergency declaration he initially issued March 13, 2020. The order exempts the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds, Truist Stadium, the M.C. Benton Convention Center and the Clark Campbell Transportation Center “due to existing COVID-19 measures in place at these facilities.”
