GLYNN CO., GA (WTOC) -

According to Glynn County officials, St. Simons Island is still in Phase 1 of the re-entry plan.

It is not safe to be out and about on the island. The curfew is still in effect for all of Glynn County from midnight to 5 a.m. on Monday.

There is a possibility that the island will be cleared for Phase 2 re-entry Monday.

Their top priority continues to be restoring power to the waste water system which currently has widespread power outages severely limiting the capacity of the sewer system. The limited sewer capacity has created a potential severe public health issue. As of 7p.m., more than 80 percent of the sewer system infrastructure is non-operational.

There is still a boil-water advisory in effect for St. Simons Island due to a loss of pressure in the system which may have allowed contaminants into water system.
