The Town of Mooresville is continuing to take precautionary measures to keep both its employees and residents safe and healthy. This includes following guidelines about COVID-19 (coronavirus) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the N,C. Department of Health and Human Services, which currently advises against gatherings and events that may feature large crowds.

After careful consideration, town officials decided to postpone or cancel all town-led Mooresville Public Library and Parks & Recreation activities, as well as non-essential town events, until approximately April 30.

These events include, but are not limited to:

♦ The Community Reads Kick-Off on March 16;
The Easter Eggstravaganza on April 4; and
The Liberty Park Grand Re-Opening on April 18.

Please check the town’s website (www.mooresvillenc.gov) and town social media accounts for cancellation notices before coming to any previously scheduled event.

The town also regrets to announce that our Mooresville Police and Mooresville Fire-Rescue Citizens Academies will be postponed.

Afterschool childcare provided by the Parks & Recreation Department will continue for now but will be re-evaluated based upon future decisions made by local school districts.

As COVID-19 continues to impact the country, it is important to seek out reliable and factual resources to remain informed and help stop its potential spread. For more information, visit the NCDHHS website.
