Flyers stoke debate over reopening the Outer Banks
MANTEO, NC (The Virginian-Pilot) — A flyer that’s being place on parked cars along part of North Carolina’s coast is telling visitors to go home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The Virginian-Pilot reported Tuesday that the message is emblematic of an ongoing debate over the value of stay-at-home orders and the need to restart the crucial tourist economy on the Outer Banks.
The flyer that’s been distributed in Dare County said: “Stop being so selfish and ignorant about this.”
Dare County rebuked the sentiment in a statement.
The county plans to allow nonresident property owners to come back on Monday.
