Horry County Facilities Close to the Public Beginning Tomorrow

On March 18, 2020 in Closings, Emergencies

For the protection of our employees and our community, all Horry County Government offices will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020 until further notice. This excludes all airports. Limited court functions will continue. All employees will still report to work at their regularly scheduled time.

We strongly urge the public to handle business online where possible. We understand that there are crucial transactions that must take place and are not available online. The public is asked to call those departments directly for information and coordination. Specifically for anyone who needs to file for office, please call 843-915-5440 and make an appointment with Voters Registration & Elections.

County staff remains available by phone and email. Please understand that we are going to be experiencing higher than usual call volumes and there may be delays. 

In addition, we have activated the phone bank for questions regarding County specific functions. It will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 843-915-5000. 

The County Council Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 24, 2020 will be canceled. 

We understand that these are trying and difficult times. We ask our community to be patient and to continue to practice good hygiene and social distancing. 

Horry County officials are actively monitoring conditions and will make ongoing adjustments as called for.
