The Currituck County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously during its Monday meeting to reopen access for all nonresident property owners in Corolla.
Owners may return beginning at 9 a.m. Thursday.
The county also announced that the board set May 15 to reopen Corolla to visitors. The date is to be reevaluated during the May 4 board meeting.
Nonresident property owners must display the appropriate Currituck County entry permit at the law enforcement checkpoint at the Wright Memorial Bridge. Business officials and employees are to continue using their business entry permits to gain access to Corolla. Each employee must have a permit.
To request either a nonresident property owner or business entry permit, contact Currituck Emergency Management firstname.lastname@example.org. Each car must have a permit to enter.
Officials recommend bringing food and supplies to last at least two weeks, as the grocery stores on the Outer Banks may not be fully stocked at this time.
While in the Outer Banks, everyone should follow Gov. Roy Cooper’s directives on social distancing and limit public groups to no more than 10 people, officials said.
