Greene County will be opening a storm shelter on Monday, August 3 at 7:00 p.m. The storm shelter is located at Greene Central High School (140 School Drive, Snow Hill). This year, Greene County is taking precautions to reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 among residents who seek safety in a storm shelter. The following CDC guidelines have been implemented into storm shelter preparations to reduce being exposed to or transmitting COVID-19:

  • All residents must check-in at Greene Central High School for screening prior to being in the shelter.
  • Residents should practice social distancing. Stay at least 6 ft. from other people outside of your household.
  • Residents need to bring supplies, i.e. medications, non-perishable food, hygiene items, activities for the children, and face coverings.
  • If a resident feels sick when they arrive at the shelter or start to feel sick while at the shelter, they should tell a staff person immediately.

The Shelter is also being sanitized and disinfected before opening to help reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 among attendees.  The Storm Shelter is pet friendly.
