North Carolina moved to the Safer At Home "Phase 2" of easing certain COVID-19 restrictions on Friday, May 22. Unfortunately, movie theaters were not included to open back up to the public in this phase and we will continue to remain closed.
The Executive Order continues to encourage the 3 Ws (wear a mask, wait and allow social distancing of at least 6 feet, and wash your hands) while Phase 2 rolls out to continue to limit the spread of the virus. Phase 2 will be in place until data shows the state is prepared to move forward with Phase 3. Phase 3 will likely ease even more restrictions on businesses and increase occupancy and mass gathering limits, but this is subject to the data. Social distancing, hand hygiene and use of cloth face coverings will still be recommended. Depending on state COVID-19 trends, restrictions may be lifted more slowly or some restrictions may have to be reinstated to ensure the health and safety of North Carolinians.
If you have any questions about phase 2 guidelines, please visit the NC.gov fequently asked questions webpage at https://bit.ly/2U137un.
