The Board of Health of Mecklenburg County – which encompasses Greater Charlotte and five other North Carolina towns — passed a mask mandate at a specially-called meeting Wednesday night. That follows by a day a mandate issued by the City of Charlotte that masks be worn at all times while indoors, regardless of an individual’s vaccination status.
Masks do not have to be worn outdoors, which includes the seating areas inside Bank of America Stadium. That’s where No. 3 Clemson and No. 5 Georgia will do battle in the Dukes Mayo Classic on Sept. 4 (7:30 p.m., ABC-TV). However, masks will have to be worn inside the concourses and all enclosed areas in the stadium.
Also, all the restaurants, bars and hotels in and around Charlotte will be requiring masks.
