Seabrook Island Town Hall will be closed the remainder of this week following a positive COVID-19 test

The employee began displaying symptoms of the virus on Mon. August 2nd and subsequently received a positive test result on Wed. August 4th. The employee was fully vaccinated earlier this year. This is the second time Town Hall has been closed this year due to a positive test result, and the first known instance of "breakthrough" case among a vaccinated member of town staff.
