We are due to come down in two weeks. Has there been any increase of cases around nags head or kill devil hills since reopening?

RE: Virus




As of today’s update from the state the caseload in Dare County is 22. Statewide our cases are rising too fast though. We’re coming down this weekend and we’re a little scared the state/county will shut everything back down.


RE: Virus




According to the declared experts on this blog, Dr. Doom and Crotch, there will be a peak in confirmed cases about the same time you arrive from the actions of visitors dining out, not wearing masks, and not staying home. While many disagree with this prognosis, these two experts will certainly comment soon.
Expect to be asked to please stay away for the good of the resident population. Your presence may contribute to depleting medical services, toilet paper, and tater tots.

We seriously need ANOTHER thread about this stupid virus??!! If people are so concerned they should just stay home.

I will admit that I am the reason for the depleting supply of tater tots, this is also why I wear a mask to cover my double chin.


RE: Virus




Let's not start throwing things! I'm not prone to over-reacting, and will be on Hatteras Island Saturday afternoon unless there's deputies at the bridge to keep me off. It's been a loooooong past three months and I need my "salt water infusion" desperately!

I would say the number is 32, not 22. 10 look to have been visitors.




RE: Virus




They don't get that specific with the numbers, just listed by county. There are also different numbers reported. NC DHHS still has it at 22 for Dare.

WHY????


RE: Virus




It’s sarcasm.
You’re fine going down. Keep distance. Wear a mask if compromised.
Don’t make out with strangers.

Not sure I can get behind that last one. It's my constitution right to make out with strangers.

I'm going to south Kentucky next week. Making out with strangers is a prerequisite (oh please...just kidding) . Theeth smiley

Maybe, old greybeard.

Four essentials to beat COVID:

1) Test and contact trace to know where COVID is.

2) Social distance at least 6 feet to reduce the spread of the virus.

3) Wear a mask to reduce the spread of the virus.

4) Ring-fence the virus wherever it is isolated, including OBX.

No rocket science here, or constitutional, or rights, stuff. It's basic fluid mechanics, if not real simple mechanics.

For OBX, Bess, pay close attention to the COVID link Tim posted for the image for for OBX at Click to follow link...

You may also want to keep tabs on the NC COVID website at Click to follow link... to see how COVID may be spreading east from Charlotte, NC. COVID spread from VA in the north may also be of interest, as well as COVID spread from the south from SC.

COVID is nasty sfuff. Janitor's cousin of our building came home from work, didn't feel so well, with respiratory problems. He was dead before the ambulance got him to the Coney Island Hospital, Pickle's territory. 2nd COVID death in her family.

Bess and Charlie, please accept my apology for my previous captious response to your question. I accidently clicked on your profile and realize you have been married almost as long as I have been alive and for that alone you have my sincere admiration. You deserve a better answer and I don't believe anyone, anywhere, is able to provide one due to the unknowns of the current situation and the motives of some experts.
I would hope that you and your family would discuss the risks of staying where you are verses going to the coast of NC. Some suggest NC is headed for disaster and you might be safer visiting New York City where they claim to have the situation under control......of course there is the issue of anarchy and the "undocumented shoppers" to contend with but each person must decide what they are comfortable with.
I am not a doctor nor do I portray one on this blog. I can only speak from my experience for the past three weeks on Hatteras Island. I have seen very few people wearing masks. I have seen no one who appeared sick. I have no direct knowledge of anyone with the virus or ever having had the virus. It is true some locals are terrified of the return of the tourists, but the majority are very welcoming. So far, my children and grandchildren have safely enjoyed their visits. The wind should continue from the southeast and bring us clear warm water that is ideal for swimming. Good luck with your decision and please understand I meant no disrespect.

Bravo! Nicely done, lowtide smiley

Only comment I'd add so as to encourage your visit is that the majority of NC reported cases (Greensboro, Raleigh and Charlotte areas) are located well west of Dare County.

Following is the latest data:

RE: Virus




Bess,

Per the NC webpage at Click to follow link... you can get virus cases to date by zip code. Not the increase you are looking for, but it may help.

Per that interactive map, Nags Head has had 5 cases to date, Kill Devil Hills is also at 5, and Kitty Hawk at 7. Not sure if there is any way to know how many of these may or may not still be active.

Hope this helps!

No problem. I missed it the first time, too.


RE: Virus




We are due to come down in two weeks. Has there been any increase of cases around nags head or kill devil hills since reopening?

Bess


Your from Northern NJ...the state where there are upwards of tens of thousands of cases per county in that area and you are worried about coming here to a county with 32 cases...I don't think I can roll my eyes any harder...

I suggest you read Lowtide's post from this morning (9:51 a.m.)


RE: Virus




Bess there are very few cases here compared to where you live. Don't be afraid to come down and enjoy your vacation. Bring and wear your mask when you go to the grocery stores. Keep in mind that Food Lion is open until 11pm and Harris Teeter is open until midnight. If you want to avoid people when you shop for food, I suggest you go around 9pm and there will be very few people. Instead of going to a restaurant, go online and order take out and most will bring it to your car.

So don't worry and enjoy your time here. Life is short.

Agree - LowTide - that was some classy biz


RE: Virus




I'm coming down to Hatteras Village next week 6/20 with the Grandkids. I am From NY and they from Jersey. I have lost an Aunt and a Friend to the Virus and my Daughter had it with no symptoms other than a headache. She tests negative now. She works in a hospital. We will be keeping to ourselves on the beach where we will spend a lot of time. I am bringing virtually all our food with us but I will need milk and eggs and some of that delicious seafood from Risky Business. I have been dealing with this for months now and am prepared. We will be wearing our masks when we go to the store but not on the beach. I am taking them horseback riding in Hatteras and I will be ready with alcohol wipes when they get off the horses. So looking forward to the vacation and you know the kids are too. Be safe.


RE: Virus




Sign on door at Harris Teeter - MP10 says open 24 hours a day... probably empty at 2 am Confused smiley

FYI, in case you didn't see it, Conner's is offering curbside pick up, so you could even get away without shopping if you don't want to.
