Governor Cooper Removes Mask Mandate, Social Distancing, and Capacity Limits
On May 14th, Governor Cooper issued Executive Order 215 that removed the mask mandate for almost all settings, indoor and outdoor. The exceptions are public transportation, child care centers, schools, camps, prisons, and certain health care settings, such as nursing homes. Please note that private businesses may still require masks.
Capacity limits have also been lifted as well as social distancing requirements. The order recommendations mask-wearing at indoor events with more than 5,000 in attendance. The Department of Health and Human Services still recommends mask-wearing for those who have not been vaccinated. Those with underlying health conditions should consult their doctor for specific recommendations.
