    » This is not an evacuation order.
    » Checkpoints will be established at entry points to Dare County beginning at 2 p.m. 3/17/2020.
    » In an effort to expedite traffic at the checkpoints, the Dare County Sheriff’s Office requests that all commercial traffic entering the county use the right lane and all regular traffic use the left lane. 
    » To avoid contact at checkpoints, if possible, please display your entry permit on your dashboard so it is clearly visible.
