The latest...

Here’s what’s happening now:

You probably know: Gov. Roy Cooper announced Friday that restrictions are lifted around capacity limits, mass gatherings, social distancing and some mask rules.

The lifting of the executive orders, which went into effect immediately, was more than 2 weeks earlier than anticipated. [read more]

Those who aren't fully vaccinated are still encouraged by the CDC to wear a mask and social distance.

What it means now: Local businesses and municipalities can make their own rules about mask requirements stricter than what the state says, and many began posting about new mask policies over the weekend.

It means more hockey fans will be able to attend Carolina Hurricanes playoffs too, WRAL reports. Masks will be required.
