What You Need to Know
The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority (CRVA) has closed its venues and offices, including the Charlotte Convention Center, NASCAR Hall of Fame, Bojangles' Entertainment Complex, Visit Charlotte and Visitor Info Centers in the best interests of our employees and in compliance with national, state, and local orders and recommendations regarding mass gatherings, teleworking and social distancing. CRVA employees, including Charlotte Convention Center and Visit Charlotte team members, are working remotely during this time and are available should you need them.
N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced that beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 22, North Carolina’s “Stay at Home Order” will be lifted, shifting to a “Safer at Home” recommendation, a gradual and cautious step with modifications to boost our economy while keeping important safety restrictions in place.
During this “Phase 2” of reopening, restaurants can open for on-premise dining at 50 percent capacity with six feet distance between each group of customers. Certain businesses such as bars, nightclubs, gyms, indoor entertainment venues, playgrounds, etc., will remain closed. Mass gatherings are limited to 10 people indoors or 25 people outdoors and face coverings will still be recommended when physical distancing is not possible. View the list of FAQs about Phase 2.
Phase 2 is set to expire on June 26, but officials will monitor the situation and make a change if any defined marks are not hit.
The CRVA has an internal task force closely monitoring recommendations and actions coming from the local, state and federal levels regarding stay at home orders and possible return to workplace scenarios. Team members on this committee are leading the efforts in developing return-to-workplace protocols and safety guidelines to address operational processes and human contact health risk mitigations.
