Governor Cooper Announced Reopening Of Event Venues at 7% Capacity


Governor Roy Cooper has just announced another step in our state’s reopening plan – essentially becoming ‘phase 2.75’.

The new step would include allowing large outdoor venues (capacity over 10,000) to host public events with no more than 7% of their maximum capacity.

“We will continue analyzing our data as we determine how to move forward safely in other areas that may be included in the new order on October 2nd,” Cooper said during a press briefing yesterday. “In it, we hope to ease some other restrictions, while keeping in place safety protocols like masks and social distancing.”

The Panthers said they will be allowing roughly 5,300 fans to watch the game in person during their next home game on October 4th in what they are calling ‘ticket pods’, consisting of seats in groups of 2-5 with 2 empty seats between each pod and every other row blocked off.

More details were sent to all PSL owners yesterday:

What do you think about the changes?
