In the video, Woodard comments on the current status of COVID-19 in Dare County, as well as the county’s high vaccination rates that make it a leader in the state of North Carolina.
Woodard also reminds residents and property owners that all individuals age 16 and older are now eligible to receive the vaccine. To request an appointment, visit www.DareNC.com/CovidVaccine or call 252.475.5008.

Chairman Woodard also provides updates to a series of projects that are currently underway in Dare County, including College of The Albemarle’s new academic building, renovations being completed on the Department of Health & Human Services campus, and the new dredge that is being constructed in Louisiana.
