Williamsburg County Supervisor Tiffany Wright issued a stay-at-home ordinance effective midnight March 26. The Ordinance does not include the towns of Kingstree or Hemingway. “They’ve taken other precautions,” said Wright. “They’re monitoring the situation and will make their adjustments accordingly.”

Wright said the ordinance is not enforceable but rather a strong suggestion. “It is simply to bring awareness to everything,” said Wright. “If you don’t have to go out, then don’t go out. If you have to work, go to work. If you have to go to the grocery store, go to the grocery store.” Read more that includes South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson's opinion on the matter in The News' April 1, edition.
