Masks protect you and me. Words of advice from the Centers for Disease Control about wearing your mask

Masks are a two-way street. They are an additional step to help prevent getting and spreading COVID-19. A mask provides a barrier that helps keep respiratory drops from spreading. Wear a mask and take these four steps for the most protection:

• Wear masks
• Stay 6 feet apart
• Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated places
• Wash your hands

The City of Myrtle Beach requires a mask in enclosed areas of retail stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, personal care businesses, professional services, gyms and fitness centers and other locations. Retail, restaurant and accommodation staff also must wear masks whenever they are in public areas or working with the public. When we all wear masks, we protect each other.
