Outer Banks Visitors Bureau officially opens Summer of Glove on the OBX

The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau has unveiled the campaign entitled “Summer of Glove” with the slogan, “Be Safe. Be Smart. Have Fun.”

The campaign is intended to encourage the continuation of safe practices, like wearing masks, social distancing and having good hygiene throughout the summer season and the foreseeable future.

As part of the effort, local businesses have been invited to take a new  Tourism Pledge committing to the safety of guests and employees. Participating businesses will be shown on the official tourism website at www.outerbanks.org/pledge.

The Tourism Pledge allows businesses to share the specific steps they are taking to enhance safety, both at their establishments and with the services being provided. The information is for the benefit of the greater OBX community, residents and visitors alike.

In addition to launching the initiative, the Visitors Bureau also recently released a new welcome video and is finalizing production of new COVID-aware messaging and imagery on the popular outerbanks.org travel planning website as the summer season approaches.
