'Stay at home' order for Winston-Salem begins 5 p.m., March 27

The following message was emailed to students, faculty and staff on March 25 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:

Dear Wake Forest community,

This afternoon, Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines announced a “stay at home” order that will go into place starting Friday, March 27, at 5 p.m.

“All individuals currently living within the city of Winston-Salem area are restricted to stay at their places of residence,” the order states. “All persons may leave their residences only for essential activities, essential governmental functions, to operate essential business or as otherwise defined.”

We have been reviewing the content of the order and need to share how it will immediately impact the Wake Forest community. Effective immediately, the following additional restrictions will be made to Wake Forest operations:

Students Living On Campus and Remaining in Off-Campus Apartments and Housing

Students still living in off-campus housing in Winston-Salem need to make a decision based on their personal circumstances; however, we encourage all students to consider returning to their permanent home before 5 p.m. on Friday, March 27.

The “stay at home” directive means students who remain in Winston-Salem are required to stay in residence halls, off-campus apartments or houses and adhere to the directives of the order. Within these spaces, students may congregate in groups no larger than 10 people, maintaining six feet of distance between each person. Wake Forest has already implemented a no-visitor requirement in residence halls, and students residing off-campus are not permitted to visit the residence halls.

Reducing movement within the community can slow the spread of the virus and help conserve critical medical resources. Maintain proper social distancing and follow essential health and safety guidelines at all times. According to the stay-at-home order, students are permitted to leave their residence only for the following reasons:

  • Seeking emergency services, obtaining medical supplies or medication, or visiting a health care professional for medical services that cannot be provided virtually (please reschedule all routine, non-essential appointments)
  • Picking up to-go meals (see on-campus dining hours)
  • Going to local stores for supplies and services, including groceries and food, household consumer products and supplies to do work from home
  • Performing work that provides essential services
  • Outdoor activity, keeping six feet away from others
