Class 2 misdemeanor. Up to $1000 fine and 6 months in jail. Serious smiley


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Can someone explain to me the sense of this if it doesn’t require masks on children under 12?


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Smart decision!


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




good. will currituck follow suit or are they already mandated there?


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




This is awesome....just like New York City! Wait a minute....you mean all three hundred thousand of us have to wear masks not just the 9 active cases of in Dare County that tested positive for Covid?
I can't find any masks for sale in Hatteras Village so I will drive north tomorrow towards Nags Head and try to locate one. If I just wrap a strip of T-shirt material around my face is that sufficient or does it need to be official looking and have elastic ear wraps?
Stay safe out there. The storm is coming. Banana Banana Banana

Good luck with this. There’s no way to enforce this. I knew local government would over react to a small increase in cases. This is not a “spike”! The vast majority of people here now are tourists, they’re gonna just laugh at any “authority” that tries to enforce this.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




I've got some out-of-state friends (GA, TX, VA) arriving on Sunday for a week's visit. I just sent the County's new requirement to them. They will bring masks and will be happy to comply. Most people are realizing that the risks of significant spikes are real. Responsible people will take the face mask requirement seriously and will comply. My friends and family certainly will.

A doctor friend who owns a home on Hatteras shook his head when he read that. All those nice incubators running around...

BTW, Staples and lapolicegear.com are selling various masks if anyone is looking for them.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Most of the face-mask regulations I've seen have an exception for kids. The theory (I think) is that it's impossible to keep a mask on a child for very long (applies to some adults too, lol). But 12 seems a bit old. Might make more sense if the requirement excluded kids 5 and under.

This is also the first face-mask requirement I've seen that doesn't exclude people exercising outdoors (running, biking, etc.). I guess a solo runner or biker might be excluded because of social distancing, but the other mask rules I've seen specifically exclude outside exercisers.

Despite its flaws, this is a step in the right direction, IMHO. Wearing a mask is a minor inconvenience that, if nothing else, will demonstrate our cooperative approach to fighting this pandemic. Heck....it might even help! Thumbs up

Asking for a friend, If a group of us get together and say that we are protesting government overreach while carrying signs, will we be exempted? Whistle

I know you're just trying to be a smart ass, but yes, you should wear a mask then also. And yes, I'm fully aware that some protesters are not wearing mask, but many do. They all should.

Seems like most (60-70%) vacationers were wearing them in close quarters, like Conners. I noticed about half of locals were not. I assumed those who work in the various establishments are local. This is a generalization. There were exceptions. I wore one while inside even though I put no faith in a thin piece of paper.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Wise move.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




A little late to the party huh?
For communities so terrified that NRPOs were going to overun them with the plague just a couple of months ago you would have thought this would have been the rule when they re-opened the bridge


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Wow! Last weekend, my husband and I were shocked at the number of crowded places with people jammed in with no masks. Even the grocery stores! Locals & vacationers violating Connor's giant sign at the entrance. So, I wonder how many folks will follow guidelines? We plan bring our own food and supplies - until the county gets their act together.

Well, my friend wants to know if, say, a group of trump supporters get together inside an giant arena, with no masks, carrying signs yelling & cheering for a political candidate, would they be exempted?

This tourist will not laugh. I will wear a mask and try my best to stay away from people not wearing masks! I'm not hiding in fear in my house but I am taking what precautions I can - the only cost is the cost of the mask and wearing one certainly does not infringe upon my constitutional rights as a citizen of the United States. Choosing to wear a mask is a simple courtesy to those around me.

Now that everyone has access to the internet over their phones, is it possible to have multiple log ons under different accounts with different IP addresses? Could that be the reason Will has given up on controlling the trolls?

Sorry. My bad. The point could have easily been made without mentioning that name. Wasn't meant to be a political response, just a hypothetical counter point. Been on this site for years, the banks for years and years longer - the face mask issue sparked the first comment - free speech is cathartic.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




Wear your mask. A little caution never hurts.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




As someone who lives in NJ, this is nothing new for us. We are required to wear masks in every store we go into. Even our children, anyone aged 2 or above. My kids just don't go to stores anymore with us. My 3 year old had his well visit and wore his mask for most of it. He did fine for that small time. And if mandatory masks are what is going to keep the OBX open for us to come in August, so be it!

From an ER nurse friend of mine.....

"If you hate wearing a mask, you're really not going to like the ventilator".

Just wear the mask and possibly save someone's life. Maybe your own.


RE: Face Coverings Will Be Required Starting June 21




As I read it if you stay 6 ft away from anyone else you don't need a mask. I find it easy to stay that far from anyone right now.
