As Dare County begins opening up for non-resident property owners on Monday, the county released this statement restating the re-entry guidelines and stressing the need to follow the Stay-at-Home Order.
We look forward to welcoming non-resident property owners beginning Monday, May 4. Dare County will open to non-resident property owners who have a valid entry permit with matching government issued ID according to the schedule below:
Entry permits can be obtained at darenc.com/entry. Following the instructions provided, non-resident property owners can receive permits by applying online. Permits will be issued to the two “Primary Owners” listed on the tax record for each property. Those who are entering should have permits and proper identification ready before approaching the entry checkpoint. A list of frequently asked questions about entry to Dare County is available on the COVID-19 FAQs page.
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.
As the number of shoppers increases, people may experience a greater wait time to enter at grocery stores due to restrictions on the number of customers allowed entry. Shoppers should also expect to see changes in product availability as supply chain demand fluctuates across the nation. Please only purchase what you need. Local grocers are also asking people to please respect the special hours set aside for at risk populations and to minimize the number of people shopping together to minimize wait times Information on stores that have reserved shopping hours or online ordering/curbside pickup can be found here.
As the gradual lifting of restrictions gets underway, it is important to continue to follow the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order:
In addition, individuals are now required to wear a mask or cloth face covering in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores or pharmacies. Visit darenc.com/facecoverings for more information.
