Hagood Homes & The Coastal Carolinas: Things are Looking Up for Wilmington, NC

With summer right around the corner, Hagood Homes is as eager as you are to enjoy the lifestyle that coastal Carolina has to offer.

With both local and state level officials monitoring current conditions, the New Hanover County order for local restrictions expired last week on April 29. While there remains additional restrictions with individual towns and cites, Wilmington is now directly in-line with the Governor’s Stay at Home Order set to expire this week on May 8. Beyond this date, there is a series of phases that North Carolina will go through as we begin to reopen the state.

Phase 1

  • Modify the Stay-At-Home order to allow travel not currently defined as essential, allowing people to leave home for commercial activity at any business that is allowed to be open.
  • Ensure that any open stores implement appropriate employee and consumer social distancing
  • Continue to limit gatherings to no more than 10 people
  • Reopen parks that have been closed subject to the same gathering limitation.
  • Outdoor exercise will continue to be encouraged.
  • Continue to recommend face coverings in public spaces when 6 feet of distancing isn’t possible
  • Encourage employers to continue teleworking policies
  • Continue rigorous restrictions on nursing homes and other congregant care settings

Phase 2 (At least 2-3 weeks after Phase 1)

  • Lift Stay At Home order with strong encouragement for vulnerable populations to continue staying at home to stay safe
  • Allow limited opening of restaurants, bars, fitness centers, personal care services and other businesses that can follow safety protocols including the potential need to reduce capacity
  • Allow gathering at places such as houses of worship and entertainment venues at reduced capacity
  • Increase in number of people allowed at gatherings
  • Open public playgrounds
  • Continue rigorous restrictions on nursing homes and other congregant care settings

Phase 3 (At least 4-6 weeks after Phase 2)

  • Lessen restrictions for vulnerable populations with encouragement to continue practicing physical distancing and minimizing exposure to settings where distancing isn’t possible
  • Allow increased capacity at restaurants, bars, other businesses, houses of worships, and entertainment venues
  • Further increase the number of people allowed at gatherings
  • Continue rigorous restrictions on nursing homes and other congregant care settings

Current Conditions

In the middle of last month the county began to re-open some recreational areas including Wrightsville Beach for exercise purpose only. Our Sales Manager Hannah Tew’s has some thoughts about all the recreational options opening up near Catherine’s Cove. Watch below.

Now with the expiration of local restrictions order, more opportunities to move about are becoming available. A few places we love that we can visit now include:

  • Grounds of Airlie Gardens
  • The Arboretum grounds
