The Outer Banks is under a lockdown with no nonresidents allowed to enter Dare County and Currituck Outer Banks. This is placing most businesses under tremendous pressure including real estate sales. We can only hope that the virus will be controlled so the Outer Banks can reopen and the tourist season can be salvaged.
If you are able please consider contributing to an Outer Banks food bank such as the beachfoodpantry.org to help our families affected by the shutdown.
