The State of North Carolina has begun Phase 3.
Governor Cooper has extended the modified stay-at-home order until at least January 29th. New restrictions include: the closure of in-door dining at restaurants at 10pm, gatherings outside the home must end at 10pm, and the sale of alcohol for on-site consumption must end at 9pm and last until 7am. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations may remain open after 10pm. Previous mandates including mask usage remain in place. More information can be found in the FAQ.
Masks must be worn:
- Indoors when in the presence of anyone not a member of the household.
- Outdoors when unable to maintain 6 feet distance from non-household members.
- Indoors at all workplaces, including retail businesses, regardless of how far apart you are working.
- At restaurants when not actively eating or drinking.
- When exercising at indoor fitness facilities.
- When riding public transportation, taxis, ride-sharing vehicles, or riding with non-household members.
Law enforcement can enforce these mask mandates against individuals and businesses. The penalty for violating the new mask mandate is a Class 2 misdemeanor that could result in a fine of up to $1,000 or active punishment.
