NOVEMBER 6, 2020: GILBERT E ALPHIN and CHAD STEEL, Google Reviews.

Google Review: Chad Steel. Blue Marlin Beach Shop, Kure Beach, NC. 11-7-2020.

Let me save y’all some time and money, shop elsewhere. Owner was rude and confrontational. Walked in the establishment not wearing a mask, and yes I understand there’s a pandemic. The owner approached and said we needed a mask to shop his store. I politely declined and told the owner to have a great day. He did offer me a free mask, which then I explained I have a medical condition (asthma which I carry an inhaler for) and couldn’t wear it. And again thanked him and told him to have a nice day and walked out of the store. Then the owner proceeded to follow me out to my vehicle where he asked me if my asthma affected my eyesight or I just didn’t know how to read. Thanking he was joking I made my way back to the door and again he asked me does your asthma affect your eyesight? It was at that point I realized he was being a facetious. I then ask him “did you just really follow me out to my vehicle to Insult me” he then again asked me if I had a problem with my eyesight and couldn’t read his sign. Let me be clear, I have no problem with a business requiring masks to shop in their stores. I do have a problem with being followed out of my vehicle because he was unhappy that I didn’t shop at his store and insult me and my father. I had two other friends in the vehicle that witnessed the exchange. We visit this shop to to three times a year but this will be the last time. The Man needs to learn some manners.

Nov. 6, 2020: 12:21pm. Take Steps During the Holidays to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
North Carolina's COVID-19 trends continue to move in the wrong direction, and everyone must be vigilant to prevent the spread of the virus. As the holiday season approaches, NCDHHS wants to make sure you take steps to decrease the spread of COVID-19. While the safest thing you can do for your friends, family, and loved ones is to avoid getting together in person, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk if you attend or host a holiday gathering.
1. Do not attend or host a gathering if you feel sick or have been diagnosed with or exposed to COVID-19.

2. Gathering limits of 25 people indoors and 50 people outdoors are still in place. Smaller gatherings pose less risk than larger gatherings and meeting outdoors is safer than meeting indoors. If you have tables, have each group of people who live together sit at their own table and keep tables at least 6 feet apart from one another. This is especially important as people will need to remove masks when eating or drinking. Clean and disinfect commonly-touched surfaces such as door handles or sink faucets.

3. Remember your 3 Ws (Wear, Wait and Wash). Wear a mask over your nose and mouth the whole time you are together – other than when eating or drinking. Wash your hands regularly or use hand sanitizer. And stay at least 6 feet apart, especially when eating or drinking.

4. Consider getting a COVID-19 test prior to travel or attending family gatherings. You can find testing sites by using the Find My Testing Place tool online. Screening tests are not perfect, but they can catch some people who have the virus and don’t have symptoms yet. Screening tests can miss some infections – particularly if you use rapid tests. And, a negative test only gives you information for that point in time. A negative test does not mean you will remain negative.
Let's keep all of our family and friends safe this holiday season. Remember, it’s not how well you know
