Emerald Isle COVID-19 Update (10/7/20)

Public Service Announcement

October 7, 2020

 A first responder for the Town of Emerald Isle has tested positive for COVID-19. In order to protect and serve the public, all necessary and recommended precautions continue to be taken. Out of an abundance of caution, select staff members are in quarantine and must receive negative test results before returning to work. Emergency response efforts will continue without interruption.

The Town of Emerald Isle encourages the public to follow the CDC and NCDHHS guidelines: 

Know your 3 Ws and remain socially distanced!

The NC Department of Health and Human Services is asking people to remember these three things as we stay strong and continue to flatten the curve and slow the spread of COVID-19.

If you leave home, practice your Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash

  • Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth.
  • Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

These actions can protect our families and neighbors as the state works to ease restrictions while the virus is still circulating.
