South Carolina News

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – The police and one other department with the City of Myrtle Beach have about 30 employees in quarantine due to exposure with a person who tested positive for the coronavirus.

According to Mark Kruea, public information director with the city, the quarantine affects two departments, police and a smaller one. “The goal is to limit any future exposure,” Kruea said. “We are following quarantine procedures for the safety and health of all involved.”

The police department has enough staff members to adjust to the health-related necessity, Kruea said, so it will not affect the department’s operations or coverage.
