VOLUNTARY CURFEW – CITY OF CLEMSON
The health and safety of all citizens and visitors in our community is paramount. Stemming the spread of the virus cannot be accomplished unless all members of our community work together.
In an effort to limit spread of the virus, and to work to protect our most vulnerable citizens and visitors, the City of Clemson hereby urges voluntary compliance with a nightly curfew.
Effective, Friday, March 20, 2020, the City of Clemson urges all citizens and visitors to observe a voluntary curfew from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. each day.
The following are exempt from the curfew:
- Police officers
- Active duty military
- Healthcare providers
- Public works and utility workers employed by any public utility, or by the City of Clemson, Pickens County, the State of South Carolina, or the federal government
- Authorized City of Clemson employees and officials performing City work
Persons needing immediate medical assistance may also travel to healthcare providers during voluntary curfew hours, as may be necessary.
Persons able to work remotely are strongly urged to do so, rather than to travel during the hours of the voluntary curfew. However, traveling directly to and from workplaces operating during curfew hours is permitted.
Of course, complying with a voluntary curfew will require changes to all of our normal lives. However, this is a serious situation and now is the time for us to act as a community to prevent spreading the virus.
Please join together to comply with the voluntary curfew and send the message that the City of Clemson and its residents Stand Strong Together against the COVID-19 Virus. Let us set the standard for other communities to follow.
