In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Tybee Island has closed its beaches and bans the open consumption of alcohol city wide. These restrictions took effect Friday, March 20, at 10 AM.
"While there have been no identified COVID-19 cases on Tybee Island, this latest move ensures that CDC-recommended precautions such as social distancing and limited gatherings are being followed," a City of Tybee spokesperson said.
While there were discussions of limiting access to the island via Highway 80. "Highway 80 is still open to traffic at this time," said Tybee Mayor Shirley Sessions
"We also have extended a grace period and suspended late fees for business/occupational licenses and utility bills," says Sessions. "You may continue to mail in your tax bills or put tax bills and water bills in the drop box in front of city hall."
