Resources for Reopening
As Currituck prepares to welcome non-resident property owners and subsequently, visitors back into our Outer Banks communities, it is important to be safe and prepared to manage any potential COVID-19 transmission. NC State University Extension has a wealth of research-based information that you can use and share to keep our community and our visitors safe.
