Operational Update

— Written By

With the lifting of the stay at home order and initiation of Phase 2 COVID-19 restrictions in North Carolina, N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck County is beginning the process of safely returning to limited face-to-face operations which comply with the governor’s orders. As always, our top priority is ensuring the safety of our clientele, volunteers, and staff. It is our hope that this strategic and measured approach, outlined in part below, will continue to slow the spread of this disease in our community. Check our website often for updates to our operational plan. We are excited about the prospect of seeing you all soon for face-to-face classes. 

  • Staff will return to in-office operations on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, at 8 a.m.
  • Public access to the Extension facility will be by appointment only
  • Public programming will be phased in slowly with limits of 10 total individuals 
  • Room capacity at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center will be limited to 50% or sizing that will facilitate a 6ft spacing – furnishings and floor markings will be provided as a visual guide
