“The ordinance was set to expire on Sept. 15,” city officials said. “Beaufort joins the Town of Bluffton, the Town of Hilton Head, and Beaufort County, all of which recently extended their mask ordinances.”
Tropical Storm Isaias has Hilton Head leaders watching out for rip tides, wind, rain, and flooding. Riley says they plan to bring in extra crews at their fire station, as well as close beaches and parks.
