Are masks required in greensboro nc?

Beginning Monday, Feb. 21, the City of Greensboro will no longer require the use of masks at municipal facilities. While county and city guidelines have changed, federal guidelines may still require the use of face masks in some situations, such as public transportation. Guilford County leaders met Thursday night and voted to eliminate the mask mandate across the county as North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper urges all municipalities, as well as schools, across the state to rescind requirements.

Guilford County no longer requires masks inside public buildings and businesses. Masks are optional at the Greensboro Coliseum complex, but may be required for select events.

Guilford County Board President Skip Alston released a proclamation for a new mask mandate starting Wednesday. Companies are responsible for the mandate, at least until January. We contacted the county health department about the application, and they told us that it will be up to each local company to enforce the mandate. But the department plans to carry out outreach and education activities to help businesses.

It will remain in the hands of each company until January. Many of the companies are fine with wearing masks. They thought it was strange that the county mandate did not include the two largest cities. We also contacted Greensboro Mayor Vaughan.

At the time of publication, his office had not responded. However, it is noteworthy that Greensboro enacted a mask mandate for its city-owned buildings.
