Traveling to North Carolina

There are no travel restrictions in place for North Carolina, and visitors do not have to quarantine upon arrival.

State health officials, however, highly encourage visitors and residents alike to practice social distancing of at least 6 feet as well as frequent handwashing and to stay at home (or self-isolate if traveling) if they are not feeling well or have symptoms of COVID-19.

Various executive orders are also in place imposing restrictions and protective measures in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Cloth face coverings are also required for anyone in public.
