Early Closure Times Are Part of the Latest Effort to Slow the Spread of COVID-19

Governor Roy Cooper’s latest effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 is a “modified stay at home/early closure” order that will act as a statewide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Executive Order No. 181 goes into effect at 5 p.m. Friday and lasts through at least Jan. 8.

The order requires restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, personal care businesses, and others to end all on-premises services at 10 p.m. Take-out, delivery, drive-thru, and curbside services are permitted during the curfew hours. The order also stops on-premises alcohol sales at 9 p.m., whether at a bar, restaurant, or by a vendor.

Retail businesses that sell groceries, medication, health care supplies, and fuel may remain open between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Travel to and from work; to obtain food, medical care, fuel, or social services; or to take care of a family member is exempted.
