SALISBURY — Though the transition to phase three of  the state’s reopening looks to have little impact on most local businesses, train rides at the NC Transportation Museum will become available and movie theaters will welcome guests for the first times in six months.

Gov. Roy Cooper announced on Wednesday that the state will move into its next phase of reopening on Friday at 5 p.m. as COVID-9-related trends and metrics have remained stable throughout the month of September. Face coverings remain mandatory and gathering limits remain in effect, and phase three will primarily impact outdoor venues, amusement parks and bars.

While large outdoor venues with seating greater than 10,000 allows 7% capacity, small outdoor venues can operate at 30% capacity, or 100 guests maximum. Movie theaters and conference centers can reopen at 30% capacity or 100 seated guests. Bars can allow for 30% capacity outdoors.

Appearing for the NEET-JEE exam amid a pandemic hasn’t been easy. While the threat of coronavirus made aspirants, parents and activists apprehensive about the conducting of the exam and triggered protests from many quarters, floods and lack of transport in view of lockdown in several areas also added to the woes of students.

However, a 19-year-old boy, Diganta Mondal, from Gosaba in Sunderbans couldn’t afford to miss the exam even in absence of transport. The boy accompanied by his father, Rabi a carpenter by profession, cycled for six hours to reach the exam centre in the city suburbs 75 km away on Wednesday. He had to travel for two more hours on public transport to finally reach the exam centre in Salt Lake Sector V, the Times of India reported.
