Governor Closes Public Access to All Beaches and Waterways; Seabrook Island Beaches Unaffected
On Monday, March 30, Governor Henry McMaster issued Executive Order No. 2020-16, which ordered the immediate closure of any and all public beach access points, piers, docks, wharfs, boat ramps, and boat landings providing public access to waters of the state, to include any adjacent or associated public parking lots or other public facilities, for the duration of the State of Emergency. Because all beach access points within the Town of Seabrook Island are privately owned, they are not affected by the Governor’s executive order. Therefore, the town’s beaches remain open at this time. As a reminder, the Mayor’s Executive Order No. 2020-01 prohibits gatherings of more than ten people while outside their homes (including on the beach), requires people within groups of ten or fewer people to practice “social distancing” by maintaining a minimum separation of six feet between individuals, and authorizes the Town’s Code Enforcement Officers to work with local law enforcement officers to disperse groups of three or more individuals if an Officer believes the group creates a threat to public health. More InformationView Governor’s Executive Order 2020-16

COVID-19 Update from Seabrook Island Club – March 31

Hello Seabrook Island Club Members,

With so much continuing to unfold, I wanted to give you a quick update of some operational items of interest.

  1. With Governor McMaster’s decree to close non-essential businesses, including sporting activities that have close contact and shared equipment, I have emailed the sccovid19 team to get clarification on racquet sports, which shares balls.  While golf clubs were not listed as a business that is required to close, I did email about golf and golf clubs also, just to be sure. I should have a response within 24 hours. Until then, as Gov. McMaster stated in his press conference, we will continue as-is.
  2. I have received a few inquiries regarding our staff and, I must say, that our membership is incredibly thoughtful, caring and kind!  We have been cross-utilizing staff in multiple areas to provide opportunities for them to maintain their work hours. We also have continued to be quite busy in racquet sports, golf, and dining, so the working hours have been maintained reasonably well so far.  We will be cross-checking employees’ pay checks to better understand the impact that these recent restricted operations have had on employee compensation. Once we are able to quantify the impact, we will then be able to determine what courses of action are best for our staff, while continuing to be the best fiduciary stewards possible.
  3. Amongst all of this, we are staying up-to-speed on the changes that are taking place, or soon to be taking place, to emergency FMLA, emergency sick time, and unemployment payments/process as a result of recent legislation.  As a management team, our primary focus is to maintain pay rates, benefits and work hours, particularly for our full time staff, while doing our best to maintain the Club’s financial position.

Thank you very much for your kind attention and ongoing support.

Fun Facts About Seabrook Island

Whether you have lived on Seabrook Island for a while or are new to the island, are you aware of the history of Seabrook Island? The Town of Seabrook Island has put together a comprehensive history dating back to 1400 BC.

You may not know some of these fun facts:

  • The Kiawah, Stono and Bohicket Indian tribes lived on Seabrook Island as far back as 1400 BC.
  • Lt. Col. Robert Sanford arrived here in 1666 on behalf of King Charles II.
  • During the Revolutionary War, British and Hessian soldiers built flat-bottom boats to use to travel up the Bohicket River.
  • Our name, Seabrook Island, is not because we are an island next to a sea. In 1816, William Seabrook, a Sea Island cotton planter, purchased the island and named it after his family.
  • The Union troops used Seabrook Island as a staging area.
  • In 1938, a large part of the island was sold and part of the property was lent (and later deeded) to the Episcopal Church to use as Camp St. Christopher. The church eventually sold all but 230 acres to a development company.
  • In the mid-1980s, work began on incorporating the town due to concern about being incorporated by the City of Charleston.  They also wanted the control that a municipal government would allow.
  • In the 1970s, SIPOA was formed and the developers opened Ocean Winds and Beach Club.
  • In the 1980s, the developers turned control of SIPOA over to the homeowners and sold the club amenities to the Seabrook Island Club.
  • The Seabrook Island Utility Commission (SIUC) was established in 1995.
  • In 2001, the town’s administrative offices moved from a storefront at Bohicket Marina to their current location.

Town of Seabrook Island Issues Public Information #10 on COVID-19

Restrictions on Individuals Entering the Town from Areas with Substantial Community Spread
In an effort to minimize contact with individuals entering the town from areas with substantial community spread of Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Mayor John Gregg issued Executive Order 2020-02 on Monday, March 30, 2020. Consistent with an order issued by Governor Henry McMaster on March 28th, the Mayor’s Executive Order requires individuals entering the town who have traveled to or from locations in the States of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and the City of New Orleans, as well as a those countries designated by the CDC as subject to a “Level 3 Travel Notice,” must isolate or self-quarantine for 14 days, or for the duration of the individual’s stay in the town (whichever is longer). This order was effective immediately and applies to ALL individuals entering the town including, but not limited to: full- and part-time residents; property owners; family members and guests of residents and property owners; short-term rental guests; employees; and contractors. The Order also requires that property owners/managers communicate notice of these requirements to individuals coming to Seabrook Island from any of the above-referenced locations. The Order will remain in effect for the duration of the State of Emergency. More InformationView Executive Order 2020-02 | Isolation vs. Quarantine (SCDHEC)

Limitations on Local Authority
The Town of Seabrook Island has received many calls and emails over the last week requesting that access to the island be limited or otherwise restricted. Consistent with the town’s Comprehensive Emergency Plan, the town has followed the orders imposed by the Governor’s Office, as well as recommendations issued by experts from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC).

We are aware that several neighboring communities, including Edisto Beach, Folly Beach, Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island, have established police checkpoints to limit access to their communities and, further, have imposed restrictions on certain business activities. On March 27th, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office issued an advisory opinion which stated, in part: “[L]ocal government cannot exercise the emergency powers delegated to the Governor by the General Assembly… The Governor… as the Chief Executive of the State, is responsible for the safety, security and welfare of the State… Therefore, counties and municipalities should be aware that any unauthorized exercise of such emergency powers could subject these political subdivisions to liability at the behest of a private citizen with requisite legal standing.”

Unlike those jurisdictions referenced above, the Town of Seabrook Island does not have a municipal police department to enforce such an order. Mayor John Gregg reached out to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) to determine whether CCSO deputies would assist the town by staffing a municipal checkpoint, if the Mayor and Council were to decide at some point in the future to restrict access to the town. On March 30th, the town received a response from the CCSO which stated, in part: “After conferring with Sheriff Cannon and County Legal, the Sheriff’s Office will not enforce restricted access initiatives unless the Governor has declared Martial Law… [T]he Sheriff is concerned with ensuring Constitutional rights are not infringed during this challenging and constantly evolving event. The Sheriff’s Office has, and continues to assist beach communities upon request; however, the deputies that are working these areas are responding to calls for service or assisting with traffic control that is not related to access of the community being served.”

Based on these limitations, and because the town does not control access through the SIPOA security gate, the town does not have a viable way to limit or restrict access to the island. At this time, the Mayor and Council remain in constant contact with the Town Attorney and various state and local partners to identify methods to best protect residents of the town. More InformationView SCAG Advisory Opinion | View Correspondence from CCSO

Pre-Screening of 911 Calls
In order to safeguard the health and safety of law enforcement authorities and other first responders who risk potential exposure to COVID-19 while providing emergency and other essential services during the State of Emergency, Governor McMaster has ordered all 911 operators or other emergency dispatchers to ask any individual placing a call for service whether such individual or any member of their household has tested positive for COVID-19 or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with the same.

Extension of School Closures
On March 28th, Governor McMaster ordered that all public K-12 schools, as well as state-supported colleges, universities and technical schools, shall remained closed until April 30th. Parents of children who attend private schools should contact those schools directly for additional information.

Seabrook Island Town Hall Closed
As a reminder, Town Hall remains closed and members of town staff are working remotely to provide “virtual services” to residents and business owners. For assistance during normal operating hours (Monday to Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm), please contact us by phone at (843) 768-9121 or by email at info@townofseabrookisland.org. The town’s code enforcement officers will remain active on the island as long as it is safe for them to do so. All public meetings have been cancelled through April 30th, with the exception of emergency meetings.

Protect Yourself and Others
To minimize the risk of exposure and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends that individuals take the following precautions:

  • Hand Hygiene: Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer, avoid of touching your face and mouth, and avoid shaking hands with others.
  • Social Distancing: Maintain at least six feet of separation between yourself and others.
  • Travel: Avoid unnecessary travel, especially to areas of high concentrations of cases of infection.
  • Limit Contact with the Sick and Elderly: Cease visits to nursing homes and other extended care facilities, except in the case of end-of-life circumstances.

More Information
For general questions about COVID-19, please contact the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) Care Line at (855) 472-3432. Staff will be available to answer calls from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm seven days a week.

For the most reliable information about COVID-19, including what to do if you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms, residents are strongly encouraged to visit official resources, including the SCDHEC and CDC websites.

Correction: COVID-19 Update #13 – March 30

By Executive Order 2020-15, the Governor of South Carolina has extended school closures through April 30,2020. To protect the health and safety of our residents, staff and guests, all SIPOA facilities will remain closed through April 30, 2020. We will evaluate recommendations from health officials at that time to determine if it is safe to reopen.

The order also states: “it is unlawful for a person to violate a provision in the proclamation including, but not limited to, any curfew set forth by the proclamation; congregate, unless authorized or in their homes, in groups of three or more and to refuse to disperse upon order of a law enforcement officer; or willfully fail or refuse to comply with any lawful order or direction of any law enforcement officer.” Violators are “guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than one hundred dollars or imprisoned for not more than thirty days.”

By Executive Order 2020-14 “an individual who enters the State of South Carolina from an area with substantial community spread, to include the Tri-State Area (consisting of the States of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) and the City of New Orleans, Louisiana, shall isolate or self-quarantine for a period of fourteen (14) days from the time of entry into the State of South Carolina or the duration of the individual’s presence in South Carolina, whichever period is shorter. This Order shall not apply to individuals employed by airlines and individuals performing or assisting with military, healthcare, or emergency response operations. Any individual required by this Order, or any directives issued in connection therewith, to isolate or self-quarantine shall be responsible for any and all costs associated with such isolation or self-quarantine, including transportation, lodging, food, and medical care.”

All visitors entering Seabrook Island are provided with this information at the Gate.

We’ve received questions about why the basketball hoops were removed from the Lake House basketball area. First, the Lake House facility is closed. Second, and more importantly, for health and safety reasons – this discourages gatherings and helps maintain social distancing.

Brown & White pickup is on a normal schedule. The next pickup is on Friday, April 3, 2020. Please place your items curbside no later than 7:00 am. Paint and hazardous waste must be delivered to the maintenance area between 9:00 am – 2:00 pm and left with the attendant on site.
