Gov. Cooper's New Executive Order - N.C. no longer requiring masks outdoors...
Last week, Gov. Cooper issued Executive Order 209 that relaxes mask wearing and other restrictions. Under the new Executive Order, masks will still be required indoors but are no longer mandated outdoors. However, masks are still strongly recommended outdoors in crowded areas and higher risk settings where social distancing is difficult. In addition, limits on mass gatherings will increase to 100 people indoors and 200 outdoors.
Executive Order No. 209 took effect on April 30 and is set to expire June 1.
