What You Need to Know

The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) is closely monitoring recommendations and actions coming from the local, state and federal levels regarding stay at home orders and possible return to workplace scenarios. We are committed to the health and safety of our team members, clients and guests.

The CRVA is working diligently in partnership with others to support the local restaurants, shops, attractions and other hospitality-related businesses that are essential to the quality of life we all know and love in the Queen City.

N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced a Modified Stay at Home Order for North Carolina after a rapid increase in key COVID-19 trends. The order remains in place through at least Jan. 31, 2021.

The order requires certain businesses and facilities to close to public business between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and limits the sale of alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. Capacity restrictions for certain businesses as well as indoor and outdoor events remain in place.

Events outside of the home must end by 10 p.m. and guests must leave the establishment and travel to the place where they will stay for the night. Travel to and from work; to obtain food, medical care, fuel or social services; or to take care of a family member is exempted.

North Carolinians continue to be required to wear face coverings in public (both indoor and outdoor), when physical distancing is not possible. 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.

Due to growth in the number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the Charlotte region, Mecklenburg County Public Health issued a directive, effective through Feb. 2, 2021, strongly advising residents on ways to protect themselves and others.
