City facilities to increase occupancy effective April 1

Myrtle Beach city facilities will increase occupancy to 75-percent of capacity, effective Thursday, April 1.  Many city buildings have been operating at reduced capacity or were closed to the public due to COVID-19.  

Beginning April 1, recreation centers, including gyms, pools and other spaces, will return to 75-percent occupancy, as will Chapin Memorial Library.   The lobby of the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center reopened this past Monday.  City Hall and the City Services Building will reopen on April 1.  

Private rentals at Mary C. Canty Recreation Center, General Robert H. Reed Recreation Center and the Myrtle Beach Train Depot have returned to full capacity.  Youth and Adult Sports will allow spectators again, with staff continuing to sanitize dugouts and high-touch surfaces.  

Please be advised that face masks may still be required indoors and temperature checks may be conducted.  Boards, commissions and committees may meet in person or virtually, depending on the chairman’s preference.  Tentative plans call for city facilities to resume 100-percent occupancy on May 1, unless circumstances change.
