I thought I would offer you a different image this morning than the CDC’s illustration of the coronavirus, so I posed my two metal flying pig sculptures on my back deck. They seem apt symbols for the improbable situation that we are all living through. (For all the landscapers out there, that is wildlife habitat behind the pigs.)

Yesterday The Beacon published a link to a list compiled by Outer Banks This Week of restaurants that are offering takeout and/or delivery of food orders during the COVID-19 shutdown. The list contained only names, no telephone numbers, service hours, or other details.

Both OBX Today and The Outer Banks Voice have been busy soliciting emails from restaurant owners and otherwise gathering detailed information about the services restaurants will be offering. Their lists may be accessed as follows:

OBX Today:

The Outer Banks Voice:

The Voice’s list also includes some retail businesses that are not restaurants.

Needless to say, you will find out all you need to know about your favorite restaurants when you call to place an order.

APRIL 3 BULK WASTE PICKUP SET

While our immediate collective future seems uncertain, strange, and slightly ominous, aspects of our daily lives remain predictable and normal. The garbage, for example, is still being collected on Mondays, and the springtime bulk waste pickup will occur in April. The Town has announced a collection date of April 3.

For a list of approved and unapproved items for the pickup, see:

The big no-nos are televisions and building supplies.

As The Beacon previously reported, Dare County is holding three household hazardous waste collections this year. The Northern Dare beach collection will occur on Thursday, May 28, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Kitty Hawk Recycling Center on Bob Perry Road. (See The Beacon, 3/12/20.)

The Beacon will publish a post targeted to news related to COVID-19 later today.
