Governor Roy Cooper’s new mask mandate goes into effect tonight through December 11 but how will it be enforced?
The new state order says everyone needs to wear a mask when they are with someone who is not a member of their family. This is only for in doors.

But they could site you if you show push back to the mandate. It is a class 2 misdemeanor and carries a one thousand dollars fine.
