City of Myrtle Beach extends Emergency Declaration for COVID-19 through March

Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune has extended the Emergency Declaration for COVID-19 through March. The action automatically extends the city manager’s executive order requiring residents and visitors to wear a cloth face mask in enclosed areas of retail stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, personal care businesses, professional services, gyms and fitness centers, among other locations. Retail, restaurant and accommodation staff also must wear masks whenever they are in public areas or working with the public. Failure to wear a mask when required is a civil infraction with a fine of up to $100 upon conviction. The City of Myrtle Beach thanks our residents, visitors and businesses for following the mask requirement. The Emergency Declaration is valid through March 31 and can be extended or rescinded, as needed.
