Amid growing concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19, all City of Morganton Parks and Recreation athletics programs have been suspended until April 6.
The City of Morganton is following the recommendations of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association in cancelling its athletics programs scheduled for the coming weeks, and is choosing to err on the side of caution to protect the health of our citizens.
City recreation facilities will remain open and operate on a normal schedule, and are not closing. Anyone who has scheduled a private event at one of these facilities will still be allowed to hold the event, unless they wish to cancel it themselves.
While the City expects its athletics programs will resume as normal on April 6, the City will reevaluate and assess the situation closer to that date and make a decision about whether or not athletics programs can continue.
