To the Davidson Community,
Yesterday, all of our cell phones simultaneously sounded at 7:50 a.m. The Stay at Home Order was about to take effect within Mecklenburg County, including those of us in the Town of Davidson. The COVID-19 pandemic is something that none of us expected to face while in office, or even in our lifetimes, but we can all agree these are unprecedented times.
Lucky for us, Davidson is a community unlike any other. If any town can (figuratively!) come together to meet a challenge head on, it’s Davidson. Here are a few things we’d like for you all to keep in mind in the days ahead:
We know it’s a difficult time with a lot of unknowns and a lot of uncertainty. We encourage the Davidson community to be grounded in the fact that so much of what we love about this place- our small-town feel, our unique local businesses, the value we place on our natural and built environment, the friendliness and kindness of our residents – these are the things that make us strong during a crisis like this. These are the things we can hold tight to and can trust will see us through.
