N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced the further easing of several COVID-19 restrictions as trends remain stable across the state. Visit these links for more details about current restrictions, face covering requirements or to view a list of FAQs about Executive Order 209, which remains in place through June 1, 2021.
Some highlights of the current executive order include:
- Outdoor mask requirement lifted; still requires face coverings in all public indoor settings.
- Increases mass gathering indoor limits to 100 and outdoor limits to 200.
- Museums, aquariums, retail businesses and shops, salons and personal care shops remain allowed capacity up to 100% indoors and outdoors with safety protocols in place.
- Restaurants, breweries, wineries, amusement parks, gyms and pools, and other recreation establishments remain allowed capacity up to 75% indoors and up to 100% outdoors.
- Bars, conference centers and reception venues, sports arenas, and other venues for live performances remain allowed capacity up to 50% indoors and outdoors.
Overwhelming evidence shows that wearing a face covering can greatly reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially from people who have it and don’t know it yet. This is a simple way to control this virus while we protect ourselves and the people around us.
COVID vaccines are safe and effective and are our best shot at getting life back to normal. Visit the CDC website for up-to-date information and resources.
