On Thursday, Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht announced his support for Wake County’s decision to issue a Stay-at-Home proclamation to all residents in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The action, which takes effect 5 p.m. Friday, March 27 and runs through April 17, is designed to limit community spread and promote the health and safety of all Wake residents inside and outside of municipal borders.

For details about everything in the proclamation, visit Wake County’s website.


Over the last week, we have all seen our lives changing.

Lochmere is a neighborhood of people always willing to help someone.

Keeping that in mind, we all have neighbors who might need our help. This includes older adults, those with disabilities, those with underlying medical conditions, or those who just don’t feel comfortable going out in crowds right now. These people might need someone to pick up their groceries, pick up medicines, etc.

We are asking for volunteers in each section of Lochmere who are willing to help when we get requests.

This email is asking for:

  • During this time, if you would like someone to help with grocery shopping, picking up medicine, or running errands, please respond to Program Manager, Gail Lewis, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  When we receive your request, you will be contacted by someone who has volunteered to help. 
  • If you would like to help a neighbor(s), please sign up HERE.

We are all facing the unknown in these challenging times. We hope to use this as an opportunity to connect neighbors and strengthen our community.

As always, thank you for your continued support and we hope you and your family stay safe and healthy during this difficult time.
