Seabrook Island Town Hall will be closed on Thursday, August 5 and Friday, August 6 after a member of town staff tested positive for COVID-19.
The employee began displaying symptoms of the virus on Monday, August 2 and subsequently received a positive test result on Wednesday, August 4. The employee was fully vaccinated earlier this year. This is the second time Town Hall has been closed this year due to a positive test result, and the first known instance of a “breakthrough” case among a vaccinated member of town staff.
Town staff will be working remotely during the closure. Individuals needing to conduct business with the town may contact us by phone at (843) 768-9121 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A drop box will also be available outside Town Hall.
Due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 infections across the state, and consistent with recent guidance from the CDC and SCDHEC, the town re-instituted a mask requirement on Monday August 2 for all visitors conducting business inside Town Hall, including those who are fully vaccinated.
