From staff reports
Beaufort County will resume regular services and reopen most of its buildings to the public by Monday, June 15.
In the interest of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting County employees and the public, administration has announced several temporary changes to operations that are in line with the public health guidelines put forth by DHEC and the CDC.
Buildings are being disinfected, and cough-guards are getting installed at service counters.
Floor markers and signs reminding guests to maintain 6-feet of social-distancing are being placed throughout County buildings.
Employees are being provided with cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, and face coverings, which they are required to wear in the workplace.
Although County offices will reopen June 15, the public is still strongly encouraged to do business online, through email or over the phone when possible.
Anyone needing in-person assistance should make an appointment ahead of time.
Beaufort County Council and committee meetings will continue to be held virtually.
All visitors to County buildings will be required to wear a face covering while there.
Plans to resume regular services vary by department and some buildings will have limited access to the public starting June 1.
