Court allows NC bowling alleys to reopen; Gov. Cooper requests stay

North Carolina

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A court’s ruling on Tuesday allows North Carolina bowling alleys to reopen immediately.

Superior Court Judge James L. Gale presided over the order that will allow members of the North Carolina Proprietors Association, Inc. to “immediately resume operation of their bowling alleys.”

The alleys must comply with mandatory operational guidelines, which include limiting the number of patrons in the business, all patrons over the age of 2 wearing a mask with exceptions, and keeping one lane empty between bowling groups.

The order outlines 15 guidelines that must be followed.

Gov. Roy Cooper has filed for a motion for stay until the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court can hear or decide on the matter.

Cooper has asked for an expedited review of the motion for stay – saying the reopening of bowling alleys can possibly cause “irreparable” harm.
