Morehead City continues to take action to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus in our city, county and state. Today, the City expanded the local State of Emergency by prohibiting the rental of a hotel/motel, rental home, condominium or any similar accommodation for less than 30 consecutive days beginning at 5:00 p.m. March 30th. The order will last through at least April 29th, 2020. The exception will be to employees performing essential services to Carteret County including contractors.
This restriction was put into place to discourage travel into our City, to slow the spread of the Coronavirus in our community, to protect our residents, and to prevent the overpopulation of our hospital and doctors’ offices.
Current guests who have rented homes and hotel rooms can stay for the duration of their existing reservations as long as they do not travel out of the county.
