Business Update from the City Manager

City of Southport Seal

Unless you meet the qualifications set forth in the Governor’s State of Emergency Order 121 and 131, for a designated “essential “ business, you must remain closed until the order is lifted. There have been some cases where after inquiring, a business has been granted such designation by the NC Department of Revenue. If you have received a letter from them, present that to the enforcement staff when they come by.

The City fully understands the severe hardship this has upon business owners and regret this must be done. However, for the health and safety of all our citizens, we are enforcing the Governor’s order. We all hope this will end soon.
