North Carolina is one of the few states in the U.S. that is requiring face masks in public places statewide. This requirement went into effect on Friday, June 26 at 5 p.m. While finding masks and cloth coverings in stores may prove to be difficult as demand rises, there are a few spots around North Carolina offering free masks for you and your family.
