County Offices Implement COVID-19 Precautions

Due to the continued rise of COVID-19 cases, Horry County Government has instituted protocols to help in the safety and wellness of our staff and visitors. Safety measures will include:

  • Anyone entering Horry County Government buildings is strongly encouraged 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 may be set in public areas of offices and lobbies.
  • Services made available online will continue and the public is encouraged to use online services when possible.
  • Some departments may require appointments to be scheduled in order to serve you best. It is recommended you call the department you are looking to do business with before coming to visit in person.

Horry County encourages individuals to continue to do business online and over the phone with county departments where possible. Horry County asks for patience if wait times exist.

Anyone planning to visit to the Horry County Government and Justice Center should be prepared to check in with staff located in the atrium of the facility. Visitors may be asked to wait in the atrium or outside the facility depending on the capacity of the facility.

Please avoid visiting Horry County facilities if you are not feeling well.
