The City of Southport HEREBY revises its previous Emergency Order and agree to not issue additional restrictions beyond what is required in the Governor’s Stay at Home Order Executive Order No. 131 – Governor Roy Cooper –, which is now in effect through Friday, May 8. Effective immediately, Southport shall mirror North Carolina’s three-phase approach to lifting statewide restrictions which follows the guidance of President Donald Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force.


Only businesses who have been designated as essential by the NC Department of Revenue may open. Guidance is given in Governor Cooper’s Executive Order (EO 131.Sections 1 thru 2) mandating minimum safeguards to maintain social distancing and regulate occupancy.
