Plans for Reopening: In counties with a population of less than 500,000 venues with a rated capacity of 500 or more individuals must submit a “plan for reopening” to NCDHD before reopening.

- Gathering occupancy for indoor and outdoor facilities are not restricted beyond the facility’s applicable rated occupancy.
