Chowan County officials on Wednesday sought to dispel a rumor that the county would be implementing a curfew beginning at 5 p.m.

Suzanne Stallings, clerk to the Chowan County Board of Commissioners, said the county had received several calls asking about a rumor on social media regarding a 5 p.m. curfew.

"That information is not true," Stallings said. "Please help us spread factual information. Chowan County is not under any curfew at this time."
