CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Over the summer, the pandemic forced people to find ways to entertain themselves. By the end of this week, though, we could see large outdoor venues open for fans.
Governor Roy Cooper announced on Tuesday that he was considering reopening outdoor venues by October 4.
“We do believe outdoor events are safer than indoor events, that’s why we’re concentrating in that lane,” Cooper said.
Phase 2.5, which brought the openings of playgrounds, museums, and gyms expires on Friday, October 4. Cooper said if the coronavirus numbers are trending in the right direction, outdoor venues could open at a 7% capacity.
