This Week on the Outer Banks | November 13 - November 20, 2020
November 13th - November 20th, 2020
As COVID-19 cases rise throughout North Carolina and the rest of the US, Governor Cooper has decreased the indoor gathering limit from 25 to 10. North Carolina will remain on pause in Phase 3 as health officials monitor trends in COVID-19 cases. Read our blog for details about Phase 3 and how it affects weddings on the Outer Banks.
With Thanksgiving and the holidays quickly approaching, it is important to remember to still practice the Three W's when out and about. Visitors and residents are encouraged to WEAR a face covering, WAIT in line at least six feet away from others, and WASH or sanitize hands frequently.
The Outer Banks Wedding Association has been hosting We Do! Sessions with our vendors here on the Outer Banks. Different creative vendors teach us how to do something and we ask them follower submitted questions. Check them out on our Instagram TV Channel @obxwa
The 29th storm in the Atlantic Ocean this season, Theta, marks 2020 as the highest number of storms in a single year according to the National Hurricane Center. We have been experiencing some heavy rain but should be experiencing cooler temps and sunny skies in our forecast.
