GREENSBORO, NC (WGHP) – Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan officially lifted the city’s mask ordinance after the CDC and Governor Roy Cooper lifted many COVID-19 restrictions on Friday, according to a Greensboro city news release.

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated individuals can stop wearing masks in most indoor and outdoor environments, including indoor gatherings.

Greensboro now falls under Cooper’s Executive Order # 215.

Greensboro will continue to require everyone in all city facilities to wear masks and face covers.

According to Ordinance No. 215, masks must continue to be worn in childcare facilities, schools, camps, public transport, health facilities and homeless shelters. Private companies can still require customers to wear masks.

“It’s important to remember that Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are still available through appointments and walk-ins throughout Guilford County,” said Mayor Vaughan. “I would like to personally thank Cone Health, FEMA, and Guilford County for their work in vaccine distribution.”
