More COVID-19 Restrictions Lifted In Charlotte And North Carolina...

We Are Slowly, But Surely Reopening And Getting Back To "Normal"


Just one year ago, North Carolina's Governor Roy Cooper announced the closure of all salons, barbershops and music venues. If you remember, initially closures were to flatten the curve over a two week period.  No doubt, when the first closures began, which included real estate agents in North Carolina being categorized as "non-essential" workers, it sure did feel the entire world was temporarily closed. 


“Being temporary doesn't make something matter any less, because the point isn't for how long, the point is that it happened.”

-- Robyn Schneider


This week, the Governor Cooper's Executive Order No. 24 reopens many of these businesses at 100% capacity. Beginning this Friday, March 26th, many of the COVID-related restrictions we've lived with for a year are being eased, including:


  1. Bars and restaurants now permitted to serve alcohol past 11:00 pm until 2:00 am.

  2. Gathering limits expanded to 50 people indoors.

  3. Gathering limits expanded to 100 people outdoors.

  4. Restaurants, breweries, wineries, gyms, pools and other recreational busineness now can open up to 75% capacity indoors and up to 100% capacity outdoors. Six feet distancing still required, as well as masks.

  5. Museums, aquariums, retail businesses, salons and barbershops can open at 100% capacity indoors and outdoors, with six feet of distancing, as well as masks.

  6. Auditoriums, arenas, and other venues for live performances limits expanded to 50% capacity.

  7. Sports arenas and fields (includes professional, collegiate, and amateur) capacity limits expanded to 50%. 

  8. Movie theatres and gaming facilities capacity limits expanded to 50% indoors and 75% outdoors.

  9. Pools in waterparks, subdivisions, and hotels also have increased capacity limits. Indoor pools are restricted to 75% capacity, outdoor pools can now be at 100% capacity.





Come in, we're open for business










“Everything passes. Joy. Pain. The moment of triumph; the sigh of despair. Nothing lasts forever - not even this.”

-- Paul Stewart

That is definitely worth celebrating.  I am ready to venture out and watch a movie. It is hard to guess when we will get that privilege again here in CA.

These are wonderful news indeed.  Our state is slow to move, we are rejoicing at 25% occupancy inside of restaurants.  I stopped paying attention to all this,  we are very busy with a project...A

Nina- Good to hear that life is opening back up in your area. I happened to read that 19 states including Arizona isn't requiring masks but when I have been in the stores most everybody is still wearing one. I will just because it is the only time I wear one so I will deal with it.  I will be curious to see how the reopening around the country will affect the numbers.

Hi Nina- Texas has been less restricted than many of the States and even though we no longer have a mask mandate, our Governor left the option open for businesses to require (or not) a mask when entering their place of business. And so far, every retail store has required a mask and I'm ok. with that.
