Roanoke Star City Strong

Welcome to the Roanoke Star City Strong: Response, Recovery and Resiliency Page! 
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has demonstrated why we are a 7 time All-America City and Hall of Fame Inductee.  Compassion, innovation, determination, patience and response are just a few words to describe how our community has shown up and stood strong during this unprecedented global health crisis.

The COVID-19 virus still remains in our community so we are asking you to remain vigilant in keeping yourself and your neighbors healthy.  

Now it's time to start planning our recovery and resiliency. This page will walk you through everything you need to know about how our city will reopen and begin our "new normal" journey.
