N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced the further easing of several COVID-19 restrictions as trends stabilize 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 204, which remains in place through April 30, 2021.
Some highlights of the current executive order include:
- Still requires face coverings in all public indoor settings.
- Museums, aquariums, retail businesses and shops, salons and personal care shops may increase capacity up to 100% indoors and outdoors with safety protocols in place.
- Increases capacity up to 75% indoors and up to 100% outdoors for restaurants, breweries, wineries, amusement parks, gyms and pools, and other recreation establishments.
- Bars, conference centers and reception venues, sports arenas, and other venues for live performances may increase capacity up to 50% indoors and outdoors.
- The mass gathering limit, which covers other kinds of gatherings not otherwise laid out in the order, is increased to 50 indoors and 100 outdoors.
- Fully lifts the 11 p.m. curfew for on-site alcohol consumption.
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.
