NMB Spokesman Says Face Mask Mandate Could End By Dec 4th Or Sooner



Pat Dowling

On Monday Night, October 19th, The City of North Myrtle Beach voted to extend its Face Mask Mandate emergency order which requires locals and tourists to wear a face mask in public indoor facilities.

Today, NMB Public Information Officer Pat Dowling reached out to us with the following:

North Myrtle Beach’s face-coverings ordinance is not tied to the availability of a vaccine.

It is tied to the City’s COVID-19 Declaration of Emergency, which expires December 4th.

If City Council chooses to, its members can rescind the Face-Coverings Ordinance earlier than December 4, 2020 by way of a Resolution. Thanks!

Horry County Council voted last night to end the county’s declaration of an Emergency Mandate effective the end of October.

Face masks are no longer required to be worn in the unincorporated sections of Horry County as of November 1st.
