[ARCHIVED] Governor’s Shelter in Place Order: What it Means for Tybee


Governor Kemp has issued a Shelter in Place executive order that supersedes all local ordinances City Council had put in place to protect Tybee Island from the coronavirus. Many people have asked how this order impacts specific measures we had implemented over the past few weeks.

What this means for Tybee Island:

1.  Tybee beaches are now open to the public with the stipulation that tents, chairs and umbrellas are not allowed. Please remember that it is unlawful for any person to pick, gather, remove, walk in the dunes, or otherwise disturb the vegetation present on sand dunes, including sea oats. Violators are subject to fines, imprisonment and/or community service

2.  The local order mandating no new check-ins at short term vacation rentals has been rescinded

3.  Also rescinded is the allowance for restaurants with a license for on-premises consumption of alcohol to sell unopened bottles or cans of beer and wine for take-out consumption off-premises

4.  The ban on open consumption of alcohol has been rescinded
