Yes. According to executive order 147, 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 maintaining a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others is not possible. Exceptions to this rule include people with medical conditions that prevent covering the mouth and nose, children under 11, 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. Click here to learn more about face coverings.
