North Carolina is under a Modified Stay at Home Order after a rapid increase in North Carolina’s key COVID-19 trends – requiring people to stay at home between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. The Order requires restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, personal care businesses and more to close at 10 p.m. Alcohol sales stop at 9 p.m. Travel to and from work; to obtain food, medical care, fuel or social services; or to take care of a family member is exempted. Through Jan 29th.
Face coverings and masks are now required in all indoor settings, even if you are socially distanced. They are required in all public outdoor areas if you cannot maintain 6 feet from others. In restaurants, guests are required to wear face coverings at their table unless they are actively eating or drinking
It is important to stay home if you are sick. While in public, people should wear a cloth face covering, practice social distancing by waiting 6 feet apart from others while in public and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer. High-risk individuals are urged to stay at home and travel only for absolutely essential purposes. The CDC defines high-risk individuals as:
- People 65 years or older
- People of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions, including people who are immunocompromised or who have chronic lung disease, moderate-to-severe asthma, serious heart conditions, severe obesity, diabetes, chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis or liver disease
