NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — All public and private boat ramps and marinas within New Hanover County will be closed for 10 days.

These additional restrictions are intended to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and are specific to motorized boats; it does not apply to kayaks, paddle boards, or other non-motorized boats.

New Hanover County Board of Commissioners Chair Julia Olson-Boseman signed a second supplemental amendment to the county’s State of Emergency and county-wide restrictions.

The amendment closes all public and private boat ramps, and public and private marinas within New Hanover County beginning today, April 3, at 7:30 p.m.

Wildlife Resources Commission, and the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. The full amendment can be viewed here.

“This decision was made with the advice and guidance from Public Health because we are going into another pretty weekend in New Hanover County, and – as we have all seen and heard – people are not listening to the Governor’s Stay at Home Orders and they are congregating in groups out on the water,” said New Hanover County Board of Commissioners Chair Julia Olson-Boseman. “The longer people don’t listen, the worse our community will fare in the spread of this virus. So we have to take decisive actions, and if that means more restrictions then that is what we will do.”

These additional restrictions remain in effect until 5 p.m. on April 13, in keeping with the county’s initial restrictions, unless rescinded earlier or extended.

Public boat ramps include those at: Castle Hayne, Sutton Lake, Wrightsville Beach, Snows Cut, River Road, Federal Point, Trail’s End, and Castle Street.

Public beach accesses at Carolina, Kure and Wrightsville beaches, as well as Masonboro Island, remain closed as well.

“The unprecedented impact of COVID-19 has led to a number of restrictions and closures in our community that we have never seen before,” said Public Health Preparedness Coordinator Lisa Brown. “None of this is easy, but it’s necessary. Public health data shows that physical distancing, along with proper hand washing, are the best ways to protect our community because the virus can be spread even without symptoms. So the more we can do now, the more we can limit potential exposure, the more lives we will save.”

I would like to have a Marlin season in May/June so stay your asses at home this month. Several idiots rafted up at palm island and masonboro ruined it for the rest of us. So this is what you get.

Maybe instead of being mad at the authorities, people should be mad at the irresponsible people that continue to raft up. That's who I blame. It's happening all over the country not just New Hanover County. I know that we can't lock people up for rafting up but passing out a meaningful fine say $500 or $1000 might get peoples attention.Then demand that our elected officials take action against China to close these wet markets. Who knows maybe the rest of the world would join in. Maybe the whole world is tired of all these pandemics coming from China and it's wet markets.

If you still think this thing came from bat soup I got some beachfront property in ohio for you to check out, but that's a tinfoil hat thought pattern for a different thread or situation

While I agree with ending the wet markets, the last outbreak to affect the US was the H1N1 Swine flu in 2009 and it originated in Mexico.

I guess you could sell a lot of beachfront property in Ohio to Dr Fauci and a lot of other infectious disease experts too.

So we have our boats tied up on a private dock, is that considered a marina? So is this a blanket prohibition on being on the water in NH Co?

No. You can use your boat if in a wet slip, but use it wisely and not like the idiots rafting up at the sandbars.

No.. https://health.nhcgov.com/your-envir...qs/#collapse12

Its No. 12 on this list.

Not sure how a leased boat slip doesn't qualify as your property but there you have it. Confusing guidance to say the least.
