Currituck County Re-entry Plan For Non-Resident Property Owners

Since March 20, both Dare and Currituck County prohibited non-resident property owners from entering the Outer Banks. On Monday, the Currituck County Board of Commissioners voted to reopen access and allow all non-resident property owners to Corolla starting this Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 9:00am. The Board also decided that visitors may be able to gain access to Corolla starting May 15. The decision on visitor access will not be finalized until the Board’s next meeting on May 4, 2020. If you are a non-resident property owner looking to re-enter the Outer Banks, read the recently released key points from Currituck County below.

Currituck County released key point for non-resident property owner re-entry:

To gain access into Corolla, non-resident property owners must display their Currituck County hurricane season re-entry permit at the law enforcement checkpoint currently in place at the Wright Memorial Bridge.

Each car must have a permit to be allowed through the checkpoint.

Non-resident property owners who need a permit may request one via email to Currituck Emergency Management at emstaff@currituckcountync.gov[Office1] 

Everyone should bring their own food and supplies to last approximately 14days, as the grocery stores on the Outer Banks may not be fully-stocked at this time. While in the Outer Banks, everyone should follow NC Governor Roy Cooper’s directives on social distancing and limit public groups to no more than 10 people.

If you are sick, stay home.

Mass gatherings are limited to 10 or fewer individuals.

Travel only for essential needs.

Only have direct contact with members of your immediate household.

All essential retailers must adhere to the Governor’s Executive Order No. 131 and comply with restrictions on the number of individuals allowed entry based on square footage of space. 

In addition to the above restrictions, individuals are now required to wear a mask or cloth face covering in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies).

All non-resident property owners should bring their own supplies to sustain themselves in their homes as much as possible, including groceries, prescriptions, paper products and other essentials. 

Decisions regarding access to Dare County for visitors will be addressed at a future date to allow for necessary syndromic surveillance and monitoring of resource availability.
