Statement on COVID19

The City of Winterville continues to monitor our local Covid-19 numbers and subsequent strain on our healthcare workers and hospitals.

As you are most likely aware, our numbers locally and state-wide continue to rise at an alarming rate. Members of our community are strongly encouraged to continue avoiding crowds, maintain 6 feet of space between yourself and others who do not live in your household, wash your hands, and wear a mask/face covering when in public (per our newly passed mask ordinance, which can be found here:

As a city, we will continue to follow the guidance of our local and state leadership and the CDC and pass helpful information on to all of you.  For information about the Covid-19 vaccine phased rollout, please visit the District 10 Department of Public Health website at

Together we will get through this.  Stay safe, stay healthy. Thank you for reading and for your continued efforts in helping to slow the spread and lessen the burden on our frontline workers.
