Currituck implements more efficient system for issuing reentry permits

Currituck County Emergency Management is implementing a more efficient system for issuing reentry permits to Corolla businesses in time for the 2021 hurricane season. A new web address – www.currituckreentry.com – provides a one-stop shop for local businesses to obtain reentry permits for their employees. These permits are necessary to enter Corolla after an evacuation of the Outer Banks.

Following an evacuation, reentry into Corolla is performed in a tier system. Priority I (Essential Personnel) and Priority II (Critical Businesses) both require employees to display Currituck County reentry permits at law enforcement checkpoints. Critical businesses allowed in Priority II must be physically located in Corolla or transient in Corolla or Carova Beach.

On www.currituckreentry.com, each business must complete the online permit application. Once an application is approved by Currituck County Emergency Management, permits will be sent via email to the business. This eliminates the need for paper applications and mailing paper reentry permits, thereby saving time for businesses and money for the county. With this improved efficiency, Emergency Management staff can devote more time to situational tasks during a hurricane or other critical event that might require an evacuation.

Reentry permits expire annually on April 30. Businesses are advised to secure their permits before the start of hurricane season. For complete details, visit www.currituckreentry.com.

Anyone with questions regarding the reentry process may contact Currituck County Emergency Management at 252-232-2115.
