RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – We may soon see restrictions relaxed in North Carolina.
The current stay-at-home order will expire on Sunday.
The North Carolina Bar and Tavern Association calls on Governor Roy Cooper to allow patrons to come back inside and end curfew as COVID-19 numbers decline and more vaccines are distributed.
CBS 17 asked Health Secretary Dr Mandy Cohen about easing restrictions earlier Tuesday.

“We’re only six weeks away from that point, but it’s great that we’re stepping away from it. And that’s exactly why the governor is looking for ways to reduce the restrictions going forward – I think he’ll announce them later this week, ”Cohen said.
North Carolina Bars and Taverns Association president Zack Medford said they are asking the governor to allow bars to operate at 30% capacity indoors and let them serve until at 11 pm with security measures in place.
