Uptown Shelby businesses are taking extra steps to ensure the safety of their staff and customers. Follow guidance from the Governor's Stay at Home order and NC DHHS regarding social distancing and proper health etiquette, including maintaining a 6’ distance, not shaking hands, washing hands frequently, and staying home if you feel unwell.

First and foremost, prioritize all health and safety precautions for yourself and others in our community. Our community health as a whole depends on collaboration, and our small businesses are the lifeblood of the local economy. We want to make sure they continue to stay successful while maintaining appropriate public health safety measures.
