3 Просмотры
More COVID-19 restrictions have loosened in North Carolina. Now masks are no longer required outdoors and more people are allowed at mass gatherings. People still need to wear masks when they are indoors. It's also recommended to wear one outside in crowded areas.

Gov. Roy Cooper's new executive order went into effect at 5 , Friday. Many people in downtown Greensboro said the move is a sign of progress. With 40% of the state's population fully vaccinated, the governor's new order cautiously loosened the mask mandate. He promised to lift more restrictions if two-thirds of the state is vaccinated.

The order also expanded mass gathering limits to 100 people indoors and 200 people outdoors. However, capacity limits at businesses stay the same. Despite the loosened restrictions, some people said they plan to keep the mask on for a while longer.
