    Thank you tourists and Non resident homeowners for not staying in your home states as instructed and coming to the OBX over the holidays and especially, most of you, not adhering to cbc guidelines and traveling during an epidemic to a small island here in North Carolina. Now the OBX is reaping the adverse effects of you wanting to party and vacation here. The numbers here are not stabilizing…they are getting worse daily. Thanks again tourists and NRPOs for you not staying in place. Great job!!
    Slow claps sound.
