Cooper extends 11 pm. alcohol curfew through Oct. 2

Governor Roy Cooper signed Executive Order 162 to extend the limited hours on the sale of alcoholic drinks in North Carolina. A Monday afternoon press release from the governor’s office states the extension was made in an effort to continue slowing the spread of COVID-19.

The order requires restaurants to end the sale of alcoholic beverages at 11 p.m. and will remain in effect through October 2, 2020.

“North Carolina has made good progress stabilizing our COVID-19 numbers, and this order will help us continue it,” said Cooper. “Now is the time to continue staying cautious and vigilant as we work to beat this pandemic.”

Local governments that have implemented orders that end alcohol sales before 11 p.m. or that apply to other entities remain in effect.
