COVID-19 Press Release- May 11 2020

Mon, 05/11/2020

Good evening Island residents,

In keeping with a measured and cautious approach to relaxing restrictions in place which are designed to prevent the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Town Council of Sullivan’s Island today voted to remove the checkpoints established at SC-703 and Breach Inlet. 

While the public will now have full access to the beach, residents and non-residents will only be permitted to exercise while on the beach. Chairs, shade devices and coolers are prohibited. Permitted exercise includes running, walking, dog walking within permitted hours and with a Town-issued dog permit, biking, swimming, surfing and other recreational activities consistent with social distancing.  Congregating in groups of more than three (3) people unless family is prohibited.  Beach goers shall remain six (6) feet apart from each other.  People with disabilities who can provide a handicap decal are exempt except for social distancing requirements.

Thank you for helping slow the spread of COVID-19.

Regards,
Andy Benke
Town Administrator
