Governor Roy Cooper announced that "Phase 2" will be pausing for the next three weeks instead of moving forward with "Phase 3" of easing COVID-19 restrictions due to the number of active cases rising in North Carolina. In addition to the pause, the requirement of face masks in most public places was also announced. This means that the Gem Theatre will remain closed for a minimum of three more weeks. At the end of this period, the situation will be re-evaulated to determine what will happen next. We encourage you to do your part by wearing your masks and participating in the 3Ws; WEAR a mask, WAIT 6 feet, and WASH your hands frequently. We need your help to #slowthespread and #flattenthecurve so we can re-open our doors.
