Council extends mask mandate, State of Emergency into December

Oct. 27, 2020

Georgetown County Council voted 6-1 on Oct. 27 to extend the ordinance requiring individuals to wear face coverings in businesses. The ordinance will expire Dec. 9 if not renewed by County Council at its Dec. 8 meeting. 

The ordinance mandates that members of the public wear masks that cover the nose and mouth in Georgetown County businesses, including grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants and retail stores. Restaurant patrons are exempt while dining, but employees must wear a mask at all times while having face-to-face interaction with the public.

Businesses are required to post written notification at their main entrance notifying customers of the new law. One may be downloaded below, or businesses may create their own.
