Access to Dare County closes at 2 p.m. for visitors. Property owners, workers, delivery trucks will be allowed entry
March 17, 2020 | Local News

In response to updated guidelines from the CDC to avoid discretionary travel and follow the The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America, the Dare County Control Group has made the decision to restrict visitor access to Dare County beginning today, Tuesday, March 17 at 2:00 p.m.

While there are currently no individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in Dare County, officials weighed the potential benefits for community health along with the tremendous impacts these restrictions have on our community. These restrictions may be inconvenient, disappointing and have financial impacts, however, they were made in the interest of public safety to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Beginning at 2:00 p.m., checkpoints will be established at entry points to Dare County and no visitors will be allowed access. Permanent residents, non-resident property owners and non-resident employees of Dare County businesses may review entry guidelines at www.darenc.com/entry. Reentry permits from previous years will not be accepted. Staff is working to activate the online permitting system by 1:00 p.m.

To avoid contact with personnel, please display your permit on your dashboard so it is clearly visible for checkpoint personnel.

Visitors will not be allowed to travel through Dare County to access Currituck County (Corolla), Hyde County (Ocracoke Island), or Tyrrell County. People who reside, own property or work in Corolla or Ocracoke will be allowed entry.

Personnel working at the Emergency Operations Center are available to answer COVID-19 related questions using a dedicated phone line. Please call 252.475.5008. Personnel anticipates a high volume of calls. If you reach a voicemail, please leave a message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

[Dare County includes Duck NC, down through Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, etc, all the way to Hatteras NC, including the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and Manteo and Roanoke Island]

Can't help but scorn those who insist NC coastal access is public even across privately owned property while maintaining that the same exact coastal access in Dare County is resident-only now. Hypocrites.

When you post it TWICE.

You do realize that there is a national emergency? Travel restrictions are in place for that reason.

So why aren't OBX rental agencies or insurance companies issuing refunds for thousand$$$ rentals paid for by non-residents who are blocked from accessing Dare County?

This absolutely appears to be a case of "everyone can use someone else's private property to access the beach except when I say so because I'm a special local."

If anyone knows of a vacation rental agency or travel insurance that is issuing 100% refunds because Dare County has restricted admission for non-residents, please post the info in this thread. Thank you!

What are you talking about? And why shouldn't everyone know that they'll lose their money because local Dare County rental companies won't issue refunds?
