Citing “coronavirus pandemic concerns,” Fayetteville officials have closed City Hall and “all city of Fayetteville buildings” to the public. City workers will be inside, but the public won’t be able to go inside.

It’s a temporary measure, according to an email sent after 10 p.m. Thursday night.

Beginning March 13, all city government offices will be closed to the public through March 20 due to concerns over COVID-19.

City Manager Ray Gibson said though city offices will be closed, employees will continue to report to work.

Gibson said city departments can be contacted through email, by phone or online.
