Visiting the OBX During the Pandemic

Welcome Back To Your Outer Banks Vacation

Welcome Back to the Outer Banks!

This coronavirus has created lasting change to the tourism industry and to this country. We welcome you to what is, for now, a new normal. Our business wishes to protect the health and safety of our homeowners and guests. To this end, new housekeeping procedures are in place, as well as new employee procedures for all of our staff. And we ask that you partner with us in protecting your family and our community while vacationing on the Outer Banks.

Please keep in mind that we are experiencing shortages in our local stores, particularly of paper goods (paper towels, napkins and toilet paper), as well as hand sanitizer, cleaning products, and other items. It will take some time to build back up inventories of all you may need, so please plan accordingly.

  • As you prepare to make your trip to the beach please remember that many of our residents remain at high risk for COVID-19 complications and be respectful of personal space in public spaces, just as you have been at home. 38% of our local population is over the age of 65.
  • Group gatherings should still be limited to no more than 25 people indoors and no more than 50 people outdoors, and social distancing recommendations are still in effect.
  • Please maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other groups when going to the beach.
  • Wearing a mask or face covering is required throughout the state when out in public places where social distancing is difficult.
  • Please visit Dare County's FAQ page for any questions you have regarding county regulations

Please be aware, that as the state of North Carolina slowly opens businesses in phases provided by the governor, your "typical" Outer Banks vacation plans may need to be altered. While many restaurants offer carry out, not all will be open. Businesses will open as allowed by the governor's outline and as staff is available. We will keep our blog updated with local information as we get it.

We hope that you will join us in our commitment to keep everyone safe while enjoying your time at the beach. Welcome back! We are happy to have you here!
