Governor Cooper has declared Phase 2 of reopening will continue for another three weeks, meaning we will not be moving to Phase 3 this Friday, as previously planned. The Governor and NC Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen have determined the data analyzed was not where it should be to lift restrictions further.

Bars, gyms, movie theaters and bowling alleys remain closed. Gatherings are still restricted to no more than 10 people indoors or 25 people outdoors. Restaurants’ dine-in services can continue at 50 percent capacity. Personal care businesses like salons and barbershops can also remain open at 50 percent capacity. These businesses will continue to have face covering and cleaning requirements and reduced numbers of people in waiting areas. Swimming pools can remain open at 50 percent capacity, and overnight and day camps can remain open with safety rules. Childcare facilities remain open and can enroll all children.

Governor Cooper also stated people must wear face coverings in public places, both indoors and outdoors, and where physical distancing is not possible. Exceptions include people with medical conditions, children under 11, people at home and people who are walking and others otherwise exercising outside when not within six feet of others.
