Outdoor Testing Sites CLOSED Saturday for Winter Weather; Indoor Vaccine Sites Open
Due to concerns about wind chills in the teens and 20s, Wake County Public Health is proactively closing its outdoor COVID-19 testing sites on Saturday, Jan. 29. Indoor vaccine clinics are still open as normal. Everyone with an existing Saturday testing appointment should have received a direct email from Wake County letting them know they can come for a COVID-19 test on Friday or any day next week at their scheduled site.
Indoor Mask Mandate Remains in Effect
Wake County’s mask mandate remains in effect for the unincorporated areas of the county, Garner, Knightdale, Morrisville, Rolesville and Zebulon. The mandate can be safely lifted when the trending positivity rate of COVID-19 is less than 5% and the seven-day average is less than 50 cases per 100,000 people, marking moderate community transmission per the CDC.Community Transmission Level
