COVID-19 Updates & Resources for Greenville-Pitt County
(Updated Tuesday, January 4, 2022)
As of 5 p.m., July 30, 2021, there are no restrictions or measures imposed by executive order for the general public in the state of North Carolina. Restrictions, however, may be imposed by local governments, medical facilities, schools, and private businesses. No general public restrictions have been imposed by the City of Greenville, Pitt County Government, or Pitt County municipalities.
Please Be a Responsible Traveler.
North Carolina's current restrictions are in place to help keep you and others safe:
Per Governor's orders, face coverings are no longer required in public (except for public transportation, hospitals and other healthcare settings, long-term care settings, childcare settings, schools, camps, correctional facilities, and homeless shelters) however, individual businesses may still require patrons to continue to wear masks indoors. However, the The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that if you live in an area with high or substantial levels of transmission to wear a mask when in indoor public settings - even if you are vaccinated.
Effective May 14, all capacity restrictions and social distancing requirements are lifted for restaurants, bars, and meeting spaces in hotels. Some venues may continue to implement stronger restrictions on a case-by-case basis and unvaccinated people should continue to maintain social distance from others and wear face coverings.
Indoor dining is now fully open. As our restaurants and businesses begin to staff up, space may be limited and hours may differ. Please check ahead and make a reservation, if and when possible. Also, some restaurants may still require face coverings indoors and socially distance tables, so please be prepared and adhere to protocols at individual businesses.
Visitors and residents should continue to adhere to government orders and health guidelines. Also, be aware N.C. counties and cities can enact ordinances and issue state of emergency declarations that impose greater restrictions or prohibitions, so please stay up to date on local conditions while traveling.
Please Practice Patience & Kindness.
We are so glad you are here! We ask for patience and understanding from visitors and residents as many Greenville-Pitt County businesses and restaurants work to reopen and staff back up to once again operate at full capacity. Many independent and locally-owned restaurants are working hard to hire and train more staff, which may cause slightly longer delays in some cases. Let's be kind to each other as we all work to get back to a better place.
COVID VACCINE SITE INFORMATION:
Vidant Greenville Vaccine Clinic:
To better accommodate current demand, Vidant Health will transition new, Greenville-based COVID-19 vaccine appointments from the Greenville Convention Center to the newly established Vidant Greenville Vaccine Clinic effective Thursday, April 8. The new Vidant Greenville Vaccine Clinic is located at 2380 W. Arlington Boulevard, Greenville, in the building formerly known as Vidant Minor Emergency.
The new location will initially be open Monday-Friday and can accommodate up to 350 vaccine appointments per day. Vidant may adjust days and hours of operations for the clinic based on demand. Appointments are required and are already available at VidantHealth.com/Vaccinate or by calling 252-847-8000.
The vaccine site serves anyone in eastern North Carolina, consistent with state and federal guidelines.
Pitt County Health Department:
The Pitt County Health Department now offers an online COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Scheduler to make it easier and more convenient for the general public to make appointments. Members of the general public must attest that they fall within the current eligible categories in order to receive the vaccine.
Find Your Spot, Take Your Shot:
A free COVID-19 vaccine will be available to all who want it, whether or not you have health insurance, but supplies will be limited at first. The goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible given the limited supply of vaccines. North Carolina moves through vaccination phases by aligning to federal priorities while empowering local vaccine providers with the flexibility to move to the next priority group as they complete phases and have vaccines available. Find your vaccine eligibility group and vaccine location.
