Want some good news? The NC Outer Banks are open for business.
Yes, even during the COVID era, you can still enjoy a fun-filled family vacation on these beautiful barrier islands. North Carolina has no travel restrictions, so you can freely enter or leave the state without having to test or quarantine.
It would be an understatement to say that the past few months have been rather rocky for everyone with the current pandemic. Here at Outer Banks Blue we want to ensure that you have a safe and wonderful vacation that you can remember for many years to come! Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your vacation while following the proper precautions.
Visitor Restrictions Lifted
Earlier today it was announced that the restriction of visitors to Currituck, Dare and Hyde Counties will be lifted beginning Saturday, May 16th.
Guests who are scheduled to arrive that weekend are being contacted by our reservations team and advising them that Outer Banks Blue looks forward to welcoming our valued guests to the beach and is prepared for your stay, and for your safety.
Welcome Back Soon
Like you we at Outer Banks Blue look forward to a return to some sort of normal routine. For us that means welcoming our valued rental guests into our vacation rental properties. While it is still too soon for our local authorities to open the Outer Banks to visitors it seems that things are turning in a positive way.
Good Monday from a soggy, warm, and perplexed Outer Banks community. Like all of you we wake up in uncertainty this morning, but eager to get back to normal.
Non-Resident Property Owners restricted from the OBX
Good evening. The Covid-19 outbreak has caused never before seen reaction from the authorities on the Outer Banks.
Tonight, effective at 10 PM non-resident property owners will not be allowed access to Dare County and Currituck County in an effort to minimize the spread of Covid-19.
As you are aware the Outer Banks is currently under an order from the local Emergency Control Group which has closed access to the area by visitors effective March 17th until further notice. We do not know when this road block will be lifted, but we look forward to welcoming you back to the Outer Banks one day soon.
Greetings from Outer Banks Blue, and from the Outer Banks,
Earlier today we received this announcement from the Emergency Control Group for Dare County:
