RALEIGH, NC (WSPA) – North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced a statewide curfew on alcohol sales at restaurants after 11 p.m. beginning Friday in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The governor said the curfew is an effort to keep restaurants from becoming bars after hours.

β€œWe’re hoping this new rule can drive down cases – particularly in young people,” Cooper said.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster announced a similar rule on July 10.

North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen said important COVID-19 tracking metrics are stable but not where she would like them to be.
