Governor Extends Phase 2 of NC's Reopening Plan

Date: July 14, 2020

Citing the steady rise in the number of new COVID-19 cases across the state, Gov. Roy Cooper said on Tuesday, July 14, that North Carolina will extend the second phase of its reopening plan by at least three weeks.

Phase 2 was to have ended on Friday, July 17, but it will remain in effect at least until Aug. 7.

Under Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan, bars and nightclubs, museums, and fitness centers must remain closed, but retail stores, restaurants, and personal-care services such as barbershops and hair salons can operate at 50% capacity. Face coverings are encouraged but not required.
