State of NC Phased Re-Opening Plan
North Carolina is taking, a three-phased approach – based on data from testing, tracing and trends and in consultation with members of the business community – to lift restrictions in place to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and save lives.
As of 5 p.m., July 30, 2021, there are no restrictions or measures imposed by executive order for the general public. It is important that the general public pay attention to municipal mask mandates and follow those mandates accordingly.
COVID-19 and variants of the virus, however, remain a threat as North Carolina experiences a rapid increase in cases among those who are unvaccinated. To find a vaccine location, go to MySpot.nc.gov.
