North Carolina will soon allow bars to partially reopen outdoors only and open up amusement parks and movie theaters as the state transitions to Phase 3 of reopening. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper announced the executive order will go into effect Friday and remain in place through Oct. 23. While students in K-5 schools will be able to move to daily, in-person classes as early as Monday, Cooper said no decision has been reached about reopening middle schools and high schools. Outdoor sports venues that can seat more than 10,000 people will be able to allow fans to attend at 7% capacity.
