COVID 19 Updates & Your Beach Vacation
June 30, 2020 - Virginia's Governor Northam issues Executive Order 67 Phase III Easing of Temporary Restrictions - As Virginia enters into Phase III of the reopening, some restrictions for restaurants have changed and restaurant owners have the ability to allow dine in if a minimum of the proper 6' social distancing can be maintained. For those of you visiting Chincoteague, we recommend that if you're thinking about dining in, you call ahead to check with the restaurant to see if they are allowing dine in. We know that some of the local restaurants have decided to remain closed to dine-in because of limited space, but are still offering call-in/pick-up and some are offering delivery.
Assateague Beach - the south parking lot work has been completed and is open along with the smaller lot to the north. We heard rumor that there were no lifeguards on duty; we'll confirm yeah or ney on that. Now that you're here, go have some fun! But please be safe. Please wear a mask in public areas. Being diligent will help to keep our numbers down.
Wishing you great vacation memories from the crew at Chincoteague Resort Vacations
Earlier Update - 5/15/2020 - Chincoteague Island is open for vacation rental guests! We have entered into Phase I of Virginia's reopening which allows vacation rental guests to return to the island. We are glad to welcome you back, however, there is still the need for social distancing including the use of masks, limited group sizes and making sure to observe the 6' distancing rule. We trust you will do your part to help keep the island safe!
For those that would like to book a reservation for a trip to the beach, we have a new "Worry-Free" cancellation policy that allows refunds if the Town issues another visitor ban or closure of vacation rental homes. We have gift certificates for you at check-in and a weekly drawing for additional gift certificates. And we still have our annual photo contest with the grand prize of a week-long vacation.
We think everyone will agree that the beach is the best place to practice your social distancing. There's plenty of space to roam on our wild, undisturbed Assateague beach. Our promise to you, our valued guests, is that we will make sure your vacation experience is the absolute best it can be. Let's face it; we will all need that well deserved vacation. We can't wait to see you!
