NC Remains in Phase 3 through November 13 at 5:00 p.m.

Extension Phase 3

On Wednesday, October 21, Governor Roy Cooper announced that North Carolina will remain in Phase 3 and continue implementing safety measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 in our state.  Phase 3 will expire on November 13, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  Both Governor Cooper and Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, urged North Carolinians to stay vigilant, as daily case counts and associated hospitalizations remain considerably above their levels on May 20, 2020, when the state announced Phase 2 of COVID-19 restrictions and reopening.

What continues in Phase 3?

  • Large outdoor venues with seating greater than 10,000 may operate with 7% occupancy for spectators. 
  • Smaller outdoor entertainment venues, like arenas or amphitheaters, may operate outdoors at 30% of outdoor capacity, or 100 guests, whichever is less. 
  • Movie theaters and conference centers may open indoor spaces to 30% of capacity, or 100 guests, whichever is less.
  • Bars may operate outdoors at 30% of outdoor capacity, or 100 guests, whichever is less. 
  • Amusement parks may open at 30% occupancy, outdoor attractions only. 
  • Face coverings are mandatory for those over the age of 5.
  • The limits on mass gatherings will remain at 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors. 
  • The 11 pm curfew on alcohol sales for in-person consumption in locations such as restaurants and outdoor bars will be extended to November 13.

Helpful Tool Reminder: SlowCOVIDNC app
