Like all of our community, we are monitoring the impact of COVID-19.  We are in regular contact with our local, state, and federal health resources. Our number one priority is always the health and safety of our citizens, employees, volunteers, and guests. Should there be any recommendations from our local health officials, we will communicate any scheduling changes and post options for accessing City officials. Any changes will be communicated on our webpage (under the News section), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and local communication channels including The Newberry Observer and WKDK. We request that any staff who are feeling ill, remain at home and we request that citizens who become ill or have had recent contact with others who are ill, avoid entering public facilities, return home, and contact their healthcare provider. We will provide ongoing updates as necessary.

Below are helpful resource links for community members, businesses, and those willing to educate themselves about the effects of COVID-19.

City of Newberry Ordinance on Face Coverings No Longer in Effect:

Concerning local ordinances, the governor’s executive order 2021-23 explicitly prohibits any county or local governments throughout the state from relying on prior orders or a state of emergency as the basis for a local mask mandate. As a result, the City of Newberry’s mask mandate was terminated by the state government on May 11, 2021.

If you are out in the community, and not remaining quarantined in your home, SCDHEC recommends that you receive routine testing once a month. You should test sooner if someone you’ve been around tests positive or if you develop symptoms. If you have received your full dosage of vaccine routine testing is not needed, however, if you show symptoms you should be tested as soon as possible.

SC Executive Orders: There are no state orders currently in effect related to COVID-19 response

AccelerateSC State COVID-19 response: Although there are no state orders currently in effect, all AccelerateSC response guidelines are still recommended, including limiting crowds, masking, etc.
