Beaufort County buildings open to public

Beaufort County Government has reopened its buildings to the public but continues to strongly encourage residents to conduct County business online, through email, or over the phone whenever possible.

Likewise, anyone requiring in-person assistance from any County department is asked to make an appointment before coming to help minimize the number of visitors at any given time.

Anyone visiting a County building is required to wear a face-covering while in the building.

In the interest of preventing further spread of COVID-19, the County is operating according to public health guidelines put forth by DHEC and the CDC.

All County employees have been provided with hand sanitizer and are required to wear face-coverings in the workplace.

All buildings will close to the public at 4:30 p.m. each day for disinfecting.

Beaufort County Council and committee meetings will continue to be held virtually for the time-being.
