UPDATE 1/2/21: Starting Jan. 2, at 5 p.m., The capacity for indoor dining is decreasing from 50% to 30%.
Due to the small size of the Azalea dining room, that number is 10 diners.
Leaders cited concerning case numbers, viral spread, and an increasing number of people in hospitals with COVID-19 for the updated restrictions. Face coverings are still required in public places, including in the check-in and waiting area of the hotel lobby.
Additionally, masked, indoor gatherings with members outside of a person’s household will be limited to two people.

UPDATE 11/24/20: Executive Order No. 180 Increasing Face-Covering Requirements to Prevent the Rapid Spread of Covid-19
The governor of North Carolina enacted Executive Order No. 180 on Nov. 23 that requires face coverings in public places “To prevent the rapid spread of Covid-19”. The order includes wearing a face covering “…indoors if anyone else is in that space who is not a member of the same household,” and outdoor spaces where “it is not possible to consistently be physically distant by more than 6 feet from non-household members”.
Violators are subject to citations by law enforcement and/or fines. A guest who enters a public space and refuses to wear a mask or leave the premises is subject to enforcement of trespassing laws.
Please help us by complying with this state-mandated requirement when you are on the premises of The Residences at Biltmore, in the hotel lobby, or in the Azalea Bar & Kitchen restaurant.
