Newberry County Offices to re-open May 26, 2020

Newberry County Government will reopen its departmental offices to the public beginning Tuesday, May 26, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.


As part of the reopening process, we strongly recommend the following procedures for the protection of your health and the health of others:

  • Wash your hands!

  • Wear a mask when you visit our offices, especially in high-traffic areas. High-traffic areas include but are not limited to lobbies, waiting areas, and customer service counters. Newberry County will not be providing masks to the public. 

  • Newberry County reserves the right, without notice, to impose occupancy limits in certain areas. Look for posted signs and be patient.

  • Physical distancing guidelines will be in place. In queue lines, “stand here” markers on the floor will guide you. 

  • Services made available online will continue without transaction fees until further notice. We encourage the public to use online services whenever possible. Likewise, any inquiries you can make over the telephone will be safer, in addition to saving you a trip.


County officials remind everyone to continue following CDC and S.C. DHEC safety guidelines as well as Governor McMaster’s executive orders that remain in effect.


The Newberry County Courthouse is now open to the public.

Until further notice the Newberry County Clerk of Court’s Office is restricting use of the records room to 3 persons at a time by appointment only.  For appointments call 803-321-2110.

We are encouraging responsible parties to continue to make fine payments by mail. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Elizabeth P. Folk,

Newberry County Clerk of Court
