Curfew to be in effect for Hilton Head, Hunting, Harbor & Fripp islands Monday, re-entry passes explained

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

There will be a curfew in effect for Hilton Head, Harbor, Hunting and Fripp islands Monday night from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Hilton Head Island residents can return to their home Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m.

There has also been some confusion regarding re-entry passes and who is authorized to enter the still restricted Hilton Head, Harbor, Hunting and Fripp islands. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office Emergency Management issues re-entry passes well in advance of hurricane events to those critical to the re-entry process.

Business passes issued by South Carolina Emergency Management are to validate the business as a vetted and legitimate, not for the purpose of re-entry as a critical part of the process, according to the BCSO.
