This Week on the Outer Banks | June 5, 2020 - June 12, 2020
June 5th - June 12th, 2020
With visitors being allowed back into Dare County and onto the Outer Banks, we will be putting together a weekly list of current events and news occurring on the Outer Banks. Social distancing is still recommended, and when going out in public, visitors and residents are encouraged to follow the “Three W’s” as outlined by the N.C. Department of Health & Human Services. (WEAR a face covering, WAIT in line at least six feet away from others, and WASH or sanitize hands frequently.)
A cloudy weekend is followed by a beautiful, sun-shine filled week! Be sure to look out for the Full "Strawberry Moon" and Lunar Eclipse Friday night! However, don't expect a strawberry colored moon. The name originates from the short-lived strawberry season and being the last full moon of the Spring.
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.
