There are no changes to County operations tomorrow, Thursday, March 19, 2020. County buildings and facilities remain closed to the public. 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.

The Horry County Emergency Operations Center activated today. Because of the nature of this event, the EOC is virtually activated, meaning that coordination between functions is happening using phone calls and emails.

The Keep Horry County Beautiful meeting scheduled for Tuesday, March 24, 2020 has been 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.
