Town of Emerald Isle: COVID-19 Safety measures
EMERALD ISLE, N.C.- The highest priority for the Town of Emerald Isle is the health and safety of our community. Following the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Gov. Roy Cooper, and local health officials, we will implement a social distancing service model beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.
As a precaution to combat the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), we will temporarily restrict non-essential walk-in traffic at the Town Administration Building and the Police Department until further notice.
Residents, guests, and contractors are asked to use online or telephone service options to secure permits, make tax payments, or submit service requests. Normal hours of operation will continue at the Administration Building (7509 Emerald Drive) and Police Department (7500 Emerald Drive).
For the protection of all members and guests, the Parks and Recreation Community Center (7500 Emerald Drive) will be closed to the public until further notice. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
