On Wednesday, May 20, 2020 NC Governor Roy Cooper signed Executive Order No. 141: Easing Restrictions on Travel, Business Operations, and Mass Gatherings: Phase 2. The Order moves North Carolina into a Safer At Home “Phase 2” as of Friday, May 22, 2020 at 5 pm. It eases certain COVID-19 restrictions to help revive the economy while protecting public health.
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 six 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.
More information about what Phase 2 means for North Carolina can be found on the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ Staying Ahead of the Curve website: https://www.nc.gov/covid-19/staying-ahead-curve
