Georgetown County Sheriff Office says it may be hot this weekend but they are urging citizens not to go out.

Warm weather is expected this weekend but GCSO says that is not an invitation to violate the governor’s executive order protecting people from the coronavirus pandemic and the safest policy is to stay home.

It is likely, however, the spring weather will bring people outside. They should take precautions to protect themselves by not gathering in groups of more than three, as the governor has ordered, and limiting contact with others through distancing.

Deputies will patrol Georgetown County beaches from DeBordieu Colony to Garden City, the county waterways and islands and the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk to be sure the public is following the safety practices outlined in the executive order.

“The order has been issued and GCSO will enforce it,” Georgetown County Sheriff Carter Weaver said. “We all have to work together in order to stop the spread.”
