Cloth face masks or coverings are mandatory to be worn in any public spaces where social distancing can’t be maintained in Dare County and throughout North Carolina. Read more here.
Local and state health officials continue to strongly encourage everyone to follow the 3 Ws – wear a cloth face covering if you will be with other people, wait at least six feet apart and avoid close contact with other people, and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.
I was called the Communists for wearing a mask last Tuesday I have decided not to go out unless I absolutely have to from now on.
We are very sorry that happened to you. We are disappointed and quite disgusted at many people’s refusal to comply with something as simple as the mask mandate, and their attitude is certainly uncalled for. Thank you for doing the right thing and wearing your mask.
