Beaufort County also approved an ordinance which is similar in many ways but differs in others, how do we know which one to follow?

Though the details between the two ordinances may vary, the basic requirement and the intent remain the same. The spirit of both ordinances is to use a face covering while in any building open to the public and for employees to wear a face covering while in any area which the public is allowed.  Simply put, if you are around other people except for immediate family, please use a face covering.

As with any issue which involves jurisdictional boundaries, it presents an opportunity to educate citizens and businesses if they are or are not in the Town limits. The Town has several informational tools to help with this, which include:
