As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community and staff.
The Federal Government has issued new guidelines and recommendations for the public to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, including avoiding groups of more than 10 people and urging older Americans to stay home and avoid discretionary travel and social visits.
Given the potential impact the COVID-19 pandemic can cause in our community, in conjunction with the declaration by the Governor that South Carolina is in a state of emergency, the Town of Pawleys Island is implementing the following immediately:
- Beginning March 18, 2020, Town Hall will be closed to the public and all administrative Town business will move to virtual and phone operations until further notice.
- All Town phone lines and emails are functioning normally, please continue to contact staff as normal for your business needs.
- We encourage all citizens to delay all nonessential business and walk-in customer service. We will not issue golf cart permits or beach fire permits during this time.
- Police and fire services will operate normally. Call 911 if you have an emergency.
- Parking and Court tickets can be paid by mail to 323 Myrtle Avenue, Pawleys Island, SC 29585
