Gov. Roy Cooper announced that bars, movie theaters, and amusement parks will be able to open for limited outdoor capacity for the first time since March.
“Under Phase 3, all of the above businesses will be allowed to open to 30 percent capacity or 100 people, whichever is less. In addition, as Cooper announced last week, all outdoor stadiums that can seat more than 10,000 people will only be allowed to open to 7 percent capacity.”
Although the bars are now beginning to reopen, the NC 11 p.m. alcohol curfew will remain until Oct. 23.
“If a bar doesn’t have a stated outdoor occupancy, no more than seven guests are allowed for every 1,000 square feet of the outdoor area’s square footage.”
Although this new executive order will replace Phase 2.5 on t p.m. on Friday, the limit on mass gatherings will remain at 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors.
