As Horry County officials continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, County Council decided to postpone the upcoming Budget Retreat to April 16-17, 2020.

The County will also postpone the Accommodations Tax meeting to April 15, 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.

During these difficult times, Horry County Memorial Library announces a new eCard option for accessing live homework help, eBooks, online courses, and education/career tools.

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. We also encourage healthy individuals to donate blood to help offset severe shortages due to the pandemic. Those interested can schedule an appointment at: www.redcrossblood.org
