General Info and Measures You Should Take

The safety and security of our community is the City of Raleigh’s top priority. We are taking the current spread of COVID-19 very seriously and are working in partnership with Wake County and other partners as we continue to monitor this evolving situation closely.

With that in mind, all events and gatherings will adhere to provisions outlined in the Wake County stay-at-home order, which bans all gatherings of any size, both public and private.  All City facilities are currently closed to the public, including, but not limited to, Raleigh Municipal Building, One Exchange Plaza (OEP), and 310 W. Martin St.

All Council committee, boards and commissions, Council district meetings, and other public meetings are canceled through April 30. The April 7 City Council meeting will be held virtually and you will be able to watch it on our live streaming video page, when council is in session.

A number of closures and service delivery changes have occurred. View a comprehensive list of COR services and their status.

Temporary Curbside Pickup Zones:

Temporary Curbside Pickup Zones are being marked off throughout Raleigh to support quick stops at local businesses for takeout services and other small deliveries. Raleigh Parking will mark off about 100 pickup zones, beginning March 18.

Food Resource Locator:

Our partners at Wake Co. are providing this Food Resource Locator map. It provides information on food distribution sites and those that serve to children 18 and under, so that they may get meals during school closures. Users are able to enter their address and find the nearest food distribution site, along with directions and specific details.

May 5 City Council Meeting Update: 

The State of North Carolina, Wake County and the City of Raleigh have all declared States of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 virus. The County and the City of Raleigh also adopted a Proclamation of Emergency Restrictions, which is intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by, among other things: requiring individuals to remain in their homes, except for certain essential activities, closing many businesses to the public, and prohibiting any gatherings which do not comply with its terms.  Because of the risks to the public that would arise from continued in person meetings, the City is converting City Council meetings to a remote electronic format for the duration of the State of Emergency. 

Individuals desiring to speak during the public hearing will have to sign up in advance using the online form on our Public Hearings page. The deadline to request to speak is Friday, May 1, at 5 p.m. 

The hearing will be broadcast for viewing by the public via the following channels: the City's website, the City's YouTube Live Stream, or Channel RTN-11.  If you are unable to access via TV or web, please contact or 919-996-3000 to obtain instructions for how to listen via telephone.

City Projects

The City of Raleigh continues to move forward with essential infrastructure projects around the city. These include major road, water, sewer, City building, and parks projects. Our staff and contractors are on-site to ensure that these projects stay on schedule and construction areas are safe. We take the spread of COVID-19 very seriously and are working with our contractors to ensure that our worksites adhere to all appropriate CDC guidelines. 
Please note that project progress may vary due to schedule changes and supply availability.
