The department has given suggestions and guidance to various businesses and citizens.

Those suggestions and guidance include: criteria for employees returning to work, guidance on obtaining and using personal protective equipment (PPE), location of COVID-19 testing sites and issues related to customers at businesses not wearing face coverings.

By either emailing or calling (919) 542-8220, residents can get their questions answered by a member of the Chatham County Public Health Department team. Both will be checked multiple times a day between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, excluding holidays, and an answer will be returned as soon as possible.

Spanish speakers seeking information can leave a message on either the email or the phone line in Spanish, and a Spanish speaker will reach out.
