Coronavirus - Communication #1

Friday, March 13 - 12:00pm

Update on Safety
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to make its way around the United States, we want to reach out to bring awareness of our responsibility to our Guests, Owners, and Employees during this time. Below are a few of the things that OBR is doing to help minimize the risk for everyone staying in OBR vacation rental homes on Hatteras Island.

Staying current on CDC and WHO information & keeping our Team informed - We've been busy cross-checking our chemicals with the recommended list of chemicals that have found to kill the virus. The good news is that Outer Beaches chemicals do, in fact, kill COVID-19. With more information developing daily, we're actively watching and cross training our Team to make sure everyone is aware of the situation.

Handling services in-house for safety and consistency - Each of our housekeepers is trained and up to date on the best cleanliness practices for sanitation and disinfection. And these processes are evolving as we learn more information. We’re wiping down all high-touch surfaces with anti-bacterial cleaning agents. The OBR commercial laundry facility, the largest of its kind on the Island, enables us to provide high temperature water to provide maximum sanitizing not achievable from home laundry machines.

Staying healthy around the office - We have hand sanitizers in multiple places across each of our buildings in key areas and entryways. We're strictly enforcing stay at home rules if sick so that everyone at the office can be comfortable. We're highly encouraging the flu shot to minimize the risk to our family of OBR Team Members.

Six Foot Distance Achievable - Hatteras Island presents a unique opportunity to meet health officials’ recommendations to frequently maintain a 6-foot distance from others. Even on major holidays, there’s a max of 2 rows of umbrellas on the beaches. Given our remote location, Hatteras does not draw much ‘day traffic’, leaving our beaches wide open with plenty of room to spread out.

Communication - Our Guest Services Team is standing by to assist if you have questions about your upcoming rental or travel insurance. We highly recommend going to this page for frequently asked questions for information regarding Coronavirus

When you’re ready to return to the beach, we’ll be here to welcome you with the southern hospitality you’ve come to expect from us. Outer Beaches Realty will continue to keep your safety as our priority and communicate any new developments.

We look forward to seeing you soon…

…at the beach!
