North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper signed an Executive Order to modify North Carolina’s Stay At Home order, and transition to Phase 1 of slowly easing certain COVID-19 restrictions effective tomorrow, Friday, May 8th at 5 p.m.
What is different about Phase 1?
Phase 1 of the Executive Order does the following:
• Eliminates the distinction between essential and non-essential businesses;
• Allows most retail businesses (with exceptions) that can comply with specific requirements to open at 50 percent capacity;
• Allows people to leave home for non-essential goods or services;
• Encourages state parks and trails that are closed to open;
• Specifically allows people to gather outdoors while following the Recommendations to Promote Social Distancing and Reduce Transmission, and with up to ten people;
• Opens childcare to working families; and
• Encourages North Carolinians to wear cloth face coverings when outside the home in order to protect others.
