Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Just received an email at 11:12am from OBX Today:

"Dare County Health and Human Services on Wednesday announced the Outer Banks first coronavirus case. It is believed the individual acquired the virus through travel or direct contact. This is not a case of community spread."

The Read more link does not work so I can't confirm. Tried OBX Today but servers are down.

Faux news? Haven't heard and news search pulls up zippo


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




True news. The County sent an alert.

Bulletin #15
March 25, 2020
11:00 a.m.

“The individual has been self-isolating since being tested and doing well,” according to Dr. Sheila Davies, Director of the Dare County Department of Health and Human Services. It is believed the individual acquired the virus through travel or direct contact. This is not a case of community spread.

This case will not show up as a Dare County case with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services because a Dare County address was not used when the individual was tested.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services staff is conducting an active investigation into this individual’s activity. Anyone who is determined to have had direct contact with the individual will be contacted.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services will not release further details about the individual to protect their privacy.

Dare County Department of Health & Human Services will continue to update our community regularly about COVID-19 in Dare County. Strong coordination between Dare County Department of Health & Human Services, North Carolina Department of Health & Human Services, Dare County Emergency Management, Outer Banks Hospital, and local healthcare providers is occurring to identify and manage any person who develops signs or symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

General information about COVID-19 in North Carolina can be found here or call the NC COVID-19 hotline at 866.462.3821. For more information about COVID-19 in Dare County, visit darenc.com/covid19 or call 252.475.5008.

Thank you, both, appreciate the confirmation.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




I sure hope it is not a drive up window employee at McD's. Serious smiley


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Is it safe to assume it's a non resident property owner?


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Hey, Mods....maybe lock this thread down before it spirals.....


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Perhaps assuming the person is a property owner is improper at this time. Assuming the person is not a non-resident seems proper.

RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Wonder if it was a non resident owner that had to go and make sure the food they left in their fridge didn’t go bad?


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Whoever the person is, and whatever contacts the person made...

Can we just pray for him/her? And for family members? Can we just ask that this person recover quickly and with minimal suffering, and minimal fear?

Wherever they are from originally, wherever they spend the most time, can we just love and pray for this person?


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Thank you Eve, this could be anyone outside of Dare County, someone who lives in a neighboring county that works there....who knows and why on earth do we need to know?

Or someone at Publix. Publix has removed the popup sanitizing sheet dispensers that were located at the entrance/exit doors. Now an employee offers a cart they have wiped down. I'd rather do it myself and take my chances plus I like to wipe my hands on exiting the store after using their touch screens at check out. I'll start bringing my own.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




It could be a college age kid who got exposed at school and now has to live at home in Dare County because their school is closed.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




This was bound to happen sooner or later. Regardless of how it got there I remain hopeful that the access to the OBX being curtailed will keep this to a minimum.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Whether they were there to save the food from their fridge and grab the toilet paper or they can trace their lineage back to bringing horses to the OBX 400 years ago, I hope they have a speedy recovery.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Unless they are of the Croatan tribe, they are NRPOs


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




Amen Eve! Prayers for a speedy recovery to anyone effected.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




I figured it wasn't a matter of 'if' but rather 'when'. Let's all stay safe!

I think this is true for anywhere.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




I just heard someone say it was a renter visiting here.

They always say that.


RE: Dare County Announces Outer Banks 1st Corona Virus




You all need to chill. By reading the report the person left Dare County (resident), might of went to see how their parents were doing, then came down with the virus.

I don't think that's possible, the current OBX Connection is not what it was 10years ago ! But I appreciate your thoughts
