The Lee County NC COVID-19 Information Hotline number is 919-352-3360. The Lee County COVID-19 Emergency Update Line number is 919-718-4686.
In a recent Facebook post, Sanford Mayor Chet Mann noted, “Please take the Covid-19 virus warnings and protocols seriously. It is totally up to you to change your behavior. If your daily behavior and habits have not yet changed or changed just a little, you are not doing enough to save lives. Practice social distancing, give up large groups or having people over to your home for parties, and wash your hands often. Young people – don’t be so foolish to believe this does not affect or include you. Be patient. We are in day 7 of the 15 day process. We can get through this together. The choices you make might save your father, your brother, your grandmother, your friends lives and definitely those with compromised immune systems. Your actions could save your own life.”
