Governor McMaster's Press Conference July 29, 2020

This afternoon in an effort to slow the virus spread, Governor Henry McMaster announced a new order that requires face mask in some public spaces. The places specifically stated that will now require a mask are restaurant and government buildings. The order also reopens movie theatres, arenas, and stadiums and the mask requirement and other occupancy restrictions will be applied to these venues. Additionally, there are additional restrictions that have been applied to restaurants, bars, and other type venues that have mass gatherings.

Let’s be safe and treat each other with kindness.

  • Wash your hands
  • Socially distance
  • Wear a mask where required and when in populated spaces
  • Stay home if you are immune compromised

Message From The Mayor

A special note about COVID-19:

These are crazy times in which we are living in.  I urge everyone to please take extra care during this time.  We must use caution with each other as we will be depending upon each other in order to get through this.  The enemy we face knows no borders, has no affiliations, and does not discriminate.  This is not a B-L issue, or a South Carolina issue, or even a United States issue.  This is a global pandemic and it is up to us to unite in defeating it.  As human beings we must unite in fairness, kindness and courage in order to defeat this.  Be safe.  Reach out for help.  Help a neighbor.  We will come out the other side stronger and more united than ever.
