MONCKS CORNER, S.C.– (Wednesday, March 25, 2020) — Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb released the following statement concerning COVID-19 and the County’s current plans.
Berkeley County continues to be proactive in our actions to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Berkeley County Council has no plans at this time to invoke a “stay at home” ordinance. We will continue to monitor conditions daily and work with our local, state and federal leaders to make the best and most informed decisions possible. Our Governor has led us through several emergencies to date and in each case, including now, has demonstrated strong leadership and erred on the side of life safety. As a County, we will stand behind the Governor and encourage everyone to follow his executive orders, stay informed, listen to the advice of medical professionals, and most importantly, stay safe.
