Yes. According to Executive Order 181, all North Carolinians and visitors to North Carolina are mandated to wear a face-covering while in public spaces. Wearing a face covering is also required outside when it is not possible to consistently maintain a physical distance of 6 feet between non-household members. Exceptions to this rule include people with medical conditions that prevent covering the mouth and nose, children under 5 years of age, and people who are walking or exercising outside. Wearing a face covering is a simple, yet powerful way to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keeps our residents and visitors safe.
