This Week on the Outer Banks | June 26, 2020 - July 3, 2020
June 26th - July 3rd, 2020
On Wednesday, Governor Roy Cooper announced that North Carolina will remain in Phase Two of reopening. It was also announced that the wearing of a face covering when in public spaces is now REQUIRED. The next announcement will be made on July 17th.
Ticket sales for the OBX Wedding Fest on November 8th will go on sale next Wednesday!
It looks like the next few days will be full of off-and-on rain and shine, but if you frequent the Outer Banks, you'll know that the weather here is basically unpredictable! Don't let a forecast stop you from heading to the beach, but, bring an umbrella just in case!
As North Carolina moved into Phase 2 of reopening, restaurants were granted permission to re-open for dine in services at 50% capacity. It is still recommended that tables are distanced and that no more than six people should sit at a table unless they are a family from the same household. Make sure to call before dining out to make sure that the restaurant you are going to is allowing dine-in customers. Take-out and delivery services are also still offered. You can find a list of caterers and restaurants in the area here.
