RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina residents will be able to frequent reopening businesses and parks as Gov. Roy Cooper’s modified statewide stay-at-home order to address COVID-19 takes effect. More North Carolina businesses can be open starting Friday evening as long as they limit customer occupancy. All but one state park will be open starting Saturday. Restaurants are still barred from offering dine-in options for at least another two weeks. And, barber shops, gyms and movie theaters will remain closed. Cooper and state health officials are urging people to remain vigilant in keeping their distance and washing their hands.
