Mayor Allen Joines today ordered that masks, shields or other face coverings be worn by anyone attending the Carolina Classic Fair and Winston-Salem State University football games played at Bowman Gray Stadium.              

Joines’ order formalizes the City Council’s decision to proceed with the fair while requiring patrons to wear masks at the event. Joines’ order also applies to anyone “working or participating in any manner at the fair, including all vendors.”

Winston-Salem State has declared that patrons to its home games at Bowman Gray Stadium must wear masks. Joines is including the games in his mask order “to support the university’s mask requirement… by all persons attending, working or participating in any manner” at home games.

Joines’ order also states, “Persons violating this declaration may be ordered to leave the 2021 Carolina Classic Fair or any WSSU football game for noncompliance without a refund or compensation of any kind.”

The order provides seven exemptions, including religious beliefs, medical or behavioral conditions or disabilities and while actively eating or drinking. 

Joines’ order was issued as a tenth amendment to the State of Emergency declaration he signed March 13, 2020. It will take effect at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30. The full text of the order is posted at CityofWS.org/COVID19.
