Indoor Mask Mandate Has Been Lifted

After months of carefully monitoring COVID-19 metrics, the Wake County Board of Commissioners have lifted the mask mandate, effective Friday, Feb. 25, at 5 p.m.

Wake County still encourages the public to wear a mask in high-risk settings and large crowds or if they are feeling sick. There are still some places, such as health care, long-term care and transportation like airplanes, where a mask will be required because of the setting or federal regulations.
