Frequently asked questions
Q: Do I have to wear a mask inside?
A: The CDC has provided guidance that fully vaccinated individuals can safely do most activities without wearing a mask or the need to social distance from others. Therefore, North Carolina has removed its indoor mask mandate for most settings. You still need to wear a mask in the following settings:
- On public transportation;
- In health care settings like hospitals, doctor’s offices and long-term care settings like nursing homes; and
- In certain congregate settings like correctional facilities and homeless shelters.
