City of Georgetown recommends eclipse viewers do not use their glasses

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – The City of Georgetown is recommending eclipse viewers do not use eclipse glasses distributed by them, as their vendor for the glasses has not tested them and cannot confirm that they are safe to use.

The City of Georgetown posted to Facebook that they received the following email form the vendor for the city's custom eclipse glasses this morning:

"Due to the recent media frenzy regarding suppliers of Eclipse Glasses we would like to advise you.

The city's Facebook post continues:

"Therefore, the City urges all persons who picked up glasses (pictured below) from City Hall, Fire Station 1 and the Police Department, to adhere to the email above. The City did its due diligence by verifying with the vendor that the glasses did "hold ISO certification and so are completely safe to use" in a July 24th, 2017 correspondence prior to purchasing them.
