UPDATE: At 5 p.m. April 20, the City of Myrtle Beach announced that they will keep public beach access and parking closed for now??? ?
South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster issued Executive Order 2020-28, which removes previous restrictions on public access points to the state’s beaches, public piers, docks, and wharfs.
The order delegates to local officials the authority to restrict access, as they see fit. Opening any particular beach will be at the discretion of local city mayors for beaches inside their city limits. Beaches located in unincorporated county areas will be at the discretion of that area’s county council.
The following businesses are also allowed to re-open with certain restrictions: (Strict social distancing requirements, operating at 20% occupancy or five (5) customers per 1,000 square feet, whichever is less.)
- Furniture and home-furnishings stores
- Clothing, shoe, and clothing-accessory stores
- Jewelry, luggage, and leather goods stores
- Department stores, with the exception of hardware and home-improvement stores
- Sporting goods stores
- Book, craft, and music stores
- Flea markets
- Florists and flower stores
All other previously closed businesses, example – in dining restaurants, will remain closed.
The Governor’s “Home or Work” order, remains in effect.
