- The rental of occupation of a hotel or motel room
- The rental of a dwelling house, including a condominium unit, for less than 30 consecutive days

These rules will remain in place until April 29th.
According to town officials, they can be extended or rescinded at any time based on the circumstances.
All previous emergency orders from the Governor and Mayor remain in place.
The statement from town officials continues on to say:
“We sincerely request the public’s awareness and cooperation. We must act decisively in order to manage the spread of the virus. We hope to welcome visitors back to Atlantic Beach soon.”
