Charleston County Government to Require Face Coverings in County Buildings

Press Release

In the continuing efforts to protect employees and citizens during the on-going pandemic, Charleston County is requiring everyone to wear a face covering while inside public county facilities effective Monday, June 29. This guidance is in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations as follows:

“CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission”

 Employees are required to wear a face covering when entering the building, moving through common areas, or when within six feet of others.

Citizens are encouraged to continue conducting business virtually when possible and utilize our on-line service portal at: https://www.charlestoncounty.org/clickandgo.php
