COVID-19 Updates

Updated on 6/24/2020

Visit High Point is working to ensure the community and visitors are informed with all updates concerning the COVID-19 mandates and recommendations. Today, Governor Cooper signed an Executive Order announcing the extension of Phase 2 reopening in NC. In addition, the Governor mandated all North Carolinians to wear a face covering in public places (indoor and outdoor), where social distancing is not possible. This order will go into effect Friday, June 26th at 5pm and will expire three weeks later on July 17th. Once we are able to move into Phase 3, the Governor is hopeful we can open gyms and bars with restrictions. For more information, here is the official Executive Order.

If you do plan to leave your house, follow the three W’s:

Wear face coverings
Wait 6 feet away
Wash hands often

Join the mutual public health initiative, Count On Me NC, that empowers guests and businesses to help keep everyone safe and protected.

The High Point Market will be October 13-21, 2020. For more information, read the official press release.
