The State of NC has mandated the wearing of masks on a state-wide basis. Text from a news article by WTKR is below:

“Face coverings are required inside and outside when a six feet distance is not possible between those who are not family members. Every employee and customer must wear a face mask in retail stores and manufacturers, such as meat processing factories, are also required to wear a mask.

Exceptions are made for children under 11-years-old, those with health conditions, and when exercising while maintaining a six feet distance.”
