How It Impacts Us
The NASCAR Hall of Fame is currently operating at 50 percent capacity, in accordance with state guidelines
In accordance with state and local guidelines, guests are required to wear face masks or coverings throughout their time at the Hall.
The NASCAR Hall has been awarded Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR certification, the gold standard of prepared facilities and the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for them.

N.C. Governor Roy Cooper announced the easing of several COVID-19 restrictions as trends stabilize across the state. Visit these links for more details about current restrictions, face covering requirements or to view a list of FAQs about Executive Order 195, which remains in place through March 26, 2021.
Some highlights of the current executive order include:
- Lifts the Modified Stay at Home Order established under Executive Order 181
- Still requires face coverings in all public indoor settings
- Allows many businesses to operate at 50% capacity
- Lifts the 100-person cap on some businesses that were operating at 30% capacity
- Increases the indoor mass gathering limit to 25 people (the outdoor mass gathering limit remains at 50 people)
Overwhelming evidence shows that wearing a face covering can greatly reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially from people who have it and don’t know it yet. This is a simple way to control this virus while we protect ourselves and the people around us.
