[ARCHIVED] Emergency orders related to Covid-19 no longer in effect

BEAUFORT, S.C. (June 8, 2021) –  On June 7, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster ended the state’s emergency order that he instated at the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic. He first enacted the order on March13, 2020, and extended it multiple times.

The City of Beaufort, which lifted its mask ordinance several weeks ago, has also lifted any other emergency measures that were in existence to help contain the pandemic.

We continue to urge our residents, visitors and businesses to follow their own safety protocols. Various vaccines for Covid-19 are available throughout Beaufort County at drugstores, grocery stores, clinics and doctors’ offices. 

Currently, almost 2 million South Carolina residents have received at least one dose of a vaccine, or 45% of the population.  In Beaufort County, more than 86,000 residents have received at least one vaccine. All residents 12 years of age and older are eligible to receive the vaccine.
