Maintaining Social Distancing During Your Corolla Vacation


As travel restrictions ease and we open up our doors for business, social distancing will remain a top priority. For travelers looking for a change of scenery, Corolla is a great choice. With miles and miles of sandy beaches, guests are able to maintain distance from one another with room to spare. To ensure you are doing your part in being a responsible vacationer, follow these tips during your Corolla stay.

Staying Safe

When going out in public places like grocery stores, restaurants, and shops, be mindful of new policies and procedures regarding social distancing. These new rules are in place to keep you and everyone around you safe. We ask that you practice patience and are respectful of locals and other tourists as we navigate through these times. Follow the rules and regulations that are set by the local, state, and national governments and be aware that certain regulations may impact your vacation. 

Enjoy Amenities Offered in Our Corolla Rentals

While businesses are slowly opening up again, some may still be impacted by the current regulations. But don't let that stop you from enjoying your Corolla vacation! When you stay in one of our OBX vacation rentals, all of the fun and entertainment can be had right from the comfort of your own accommodation. We offer plenty of amenities such as homes with a private pool, hot tub, game room, pet-friendly, and theater room. If you don't feel like dealing with the salt and sand, lounge by the private pool at your rental, or if you're wanting to keep the family entertained, grab a bowl of popcorn and pick the family's favorite movie to watch in the theater room. Our private and spacious homes have everything you need without having to step out. 

What to Bring

Corolla, like many other communities, is facing an inconsistent chain of supplies in our stores. We recommend shopping ahead of time and bringing items like dry goods, additional paper products, personal protective equipment like masks and gloves, personal cleaning products, disinfectants, medications, and other essentials that may not be readily available during your stay.

Vacation Responsibly

With any travel destination, it is important the guests are respectful of the local environment. Remember to always pick up after yourself after enjoying a day on the beach. This includes personal protective equipment, beach towels, chairs, food/drink, etc. Leave no trace behind. Also, we encourage guests to be patient when out in public at restaurants and stores. You'll likely run into a long line at the store or a restaurant that's only offering to-go orders, so remember to maintain distance and be respectful and understanding. 

Cleaning and Sanitation

Corolla Classic Vacations' professional housekeeping team upholds the highest cleaning standards on the Outer Banks. Our cleaners must pass a rigorous, annual training program, which now includes an additional detailed protocol on sanitation and safety related to COVID-19. Our homes are professionally cleaned between each guest using CDC and EPA-approved products and chemicals. High-touch surfaces throughout the property receive additional sanitizing including but not limited to doorknobs/handles, light switches, handrails, electronics (phone, remote controls, touchpads, elevator buttons), kitchen appliance knobs and handles, and indoor recreational equipment. Carpet cleaning and air filter replacement are done on a regular schedule.
