The health and safety of our community and staff is our highest priority. Dare County is acting on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ (NCDHHS) latest recommendations to practice social distancing and to cancel or postpone events and meetings with more than 10 people. The CDC and NCDHHS are making this recommendation to reduce the spread of infection in order to protect lives and avoid strain on our health care system. 

Call before you come is a best practice for any type of services you may need, whether its a county service or non-emergency medical care. This can reduce the need for face-to-face interactions, as well as allow you to get the information you need prior to showing up. For example, your healthcare provider will be able to do a screening to determine what your next steps should be, or the county offices can let you know any alternatives for face-to-face services.
