Horry County Government COVID19 Operations Update

[01.08.21-Please note the below changes to court operations]

Following the guidance from Governor McMaster and state agencies, Horry County will allow public access to its buildings with the best safety practices being implemented. Safety measures will include:

  • Everyone in high-traffic public areas will be required to wear masks while inside facilities. This includes lobbies, waiting areas, customer service counters, etc. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own mask and wear it prior to entering the facilities.
  • Occupancy limits are set in public areas of offices and lobbies.
  • Physical distancing guidelines are in place.
  • Services made available online will continue and the public is encouraged to use online services when possible.
  • Additional hand sanitizing stations are stationed in public areas.
  • Enhanced cleaning operations will continue.

To help alleviate crowding in public areas, Horry County encourages individuals to continue to do business online and over the phone with county departments where possible. Horry County will continue to phase into operations as conditions permit, and ask for patience if wait times exist.

Anyone planning to visit a County building should be prepared to check in with staff located at the entrance to the facility. Visitors may be asked to wait outside the office or facility depending on the capacity of the facility.

County officials remind everyone to continue to follow CDC and S.C. DHEC safety guidelines as well as Governor McMaster’s executive orders that remain in effect.

Circuit Court and Family Court cases will not be heard in person until further notice, with the exception of emergency situations. 

All Summary Court (Central Traffic, Central Jury, Magistrate's, and Preliminary Hearings) proceedings have been suspended beginning January 11, 2021, until further notice.
