Current Chamber and NC Covid-19 Restrictions

December 13, 2020

The Carteret County Chamber of Commerce continues to take precautions against the spread of Covid-19 through a series of safety measures in our office and restricted access.

Since May, the Chamber has had limited staff working in office daily, with the rest working from home. Regular business hours of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, are being observed in both situations. Please note, our office may be temporarily unattended without prior notice if staff has errands to run. Members of the public are not allowed into our office unless they have a previously scheduled appointment. Masks are required to be worn covering the mouth and nose when there is more than one person in the office.

If you need curbside assistance for print materials or other information during regular business hours, please knock on the door or call 252-726-6350, and a staff member will be happy to come outside and assist you. Our conference room, kitchen and bathrooms remain closed to the public. Additionally, the Chamber is currently not hosting any events. Our staff is keeping a close eye on local Covid-19 numbers and looks forward to the future when we can safely hold events again.
