Nightly Curfew Remains In Place

Post Date:06/01/2020 12:02 PM

At 5:30 PM on Sunday, May 31, 2020, Dorchester County Council issued a State of Emergency in Dorchester County. The State of Emergency will remain in place until rescinded by County Council.

Effective until further notice, a nightly curfew has been issued for Unincorporated Dorchester County between the hours of 6:00 PM and 6:00 AM. The curfew does not apply to residents and business owners traveling to or from work. 

While Dorchester County respects the constitutional rights of all individuals to peacefully protest, the County asks that they do so with the safety of themselves and others in mind. Personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves should be worn and proper social distancing should be practiced as we continue to work to flatten the curve of COVID-19. 

The Water & Sewer Committee of Council Meeting and the County Council Meeting scheduled for tonight Monday, June 1, 2020, have been rescheduled to Wednesday, June 3, 2020, beginning at 5:45 PM in the Summerville County Council Chambers. 

The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office requests that criminal or suspicious activity be reported to the Emergency Dispatch Center at (843) 873-5111.
