Masks: NC Sheriff's Association

Regarding your mask thread. I got this notification from the NC Sheriff's Association yesterday.

Senate Bill 704 Temporarily Authorizes Masks in Public for Health & Safety Due to COVID-19.

With the enactment in May, 2020 of Section 4 of Senate Bill 704, a person is now temporarily authorized to wear a mask in public and on private premises (such as in a shopping mall) for the “purpose of ensuring the physical health or safety of the wearer or others.” The person wearing a mask for health or safety reasons must remove the mask upon the request of a law enforcement officer during a traffic stop (including at a checkpoint or roadblock) or criminal investigation.

This temporary authorization only applies to the misdemeanors described above but DOES NOT apply to the felonies described above. 

This temporary authorization expires on August 1, 2020. If the General Assembly does not extend this temporary provision of law, it will again be a Class 1 misdemeanor for any person to wear a mask in public (including those with a concealed handgun permit whether or not they are carrying a concealed handgun) unless one of the other exceptions described above applies.
