Governor McMaster closes all S.C. Beaches

In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Governor Henry McMaster closed public access to all S.C. beaches today.

“As a result of behavior observed this past weekend by the Department of Natural Resources and SLED, it has become necessary to close public access to our state’s beaches, and to close boat ramps and landings on our state’s lakes, rivers and waterways,” McMaster said. “This is unfortunate for those who chose to responsibly follow the instructions of our public health officials, but it is a necessary action to prevent the spread of this dangerous virus.”
