Additional Restrictions on Restaurants, Government Buildings, Limits Crowd Sizes, Calls on Local Governments to Pass Ordinances

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Gov. Henry McMaster announced that all previously recommended guidelines for restaurants and other establishments that attract groups of people are now mandatory. The governor’s Executive Order establishing these new measures will go into effect Monday, August 3.

“These limited restrictions are temporary, they are measured, and they are targeted towards what we know works,” said Gov. Henry McMaster. “These measures give South Carolina the best chance to slow the spread of the virus without shutting down the state’s economy – which we cannot and will not do – as many continue to call for.”

Additionally, the governor continued his call for all South Carolinians to wear face coverings when appropriate, and he encouraged local governments to adopt face covering ordinances. The governor also ordered that face coverings must be worn in all state government buildings according to guidelines and procedures developed by the state Department of Administration, effective August 5th.

These guidelines for restaurants, first established by AccelerateSC, have been strongly recommended until now. They are now mandatory and include the following:
• Operating dine-in services at no more than 50% of the certificate of occupancy issued by the fire marshal.
• Employees and patrons shall be required to wear masks or face coverings.
• Tables are to be spaced to keep diners at least six feet apart.
• No more than 8 customers per table unless from the same family.
• Standing or congregating in bar area of restaurant is prohibited.
• Establishments that possess a state permit to sell alcohol shall be subject to these restrictions.
Other types of businesses, facilities, venues, events or mass gatherings which are permitted to open but are required to implement AccelerateSC guidelines include the following: festivals, parades, concerts, theaters, stadiums, arenas, coliseums, auditoriums, grandstands, amphitheaters, gymnasiums, concert halls, dance, halls, performing arts centers, parks, racetracks, or similarly operated entities. These guidelines include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Attendance may not exceed 50% of the certificate of occupancy issued by the fire marshal – or 250 persons – whichever is less.
• Require the wearing of masks or face coverings as a condition of admission or participation
• Enact social distancing, cleaning and hygiene practices as recommended by AccelerateSC
• End the sale of alcohol at 11:00 PM

Businesses, event organizers, and others responsible for events that may exceed the occupancy rules may receive clarification allowing the event to proceed if they can satisfactorily demonstrate an ability to comply with federal and state COVID-19 procedures and protocols to the Department of Commerce.

MUSC to Conduct Free COVID-19 Testing in Hartsville

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) will be conducting free COVID-19 testing in Hartsville at the Byerly Park Sports Complex located at 700 Russell Road on Monday, May 18, 2020 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Testing is available at this mobile site in a drive-through or walk-up format for those interested in being tested.

The South Carolina General Assembly adopted legislation this week sending $25 million to help with statewide COVID-19 testing. Two local legislators, House Speaker Jay Lucas and Senator Gerald Malloy, were instrumental in securing the Hartsville facility for testing. “Securing access to testing in smaller and rural communities across the state has remained my top priority,” said Speaker Jay Lucas. “I am gratified that MUSC is offering free COVID-19 testing in my hometown of Hartsville, as extensive testing is key to defeating this virus. I am confident that today marks a significant step in the right direction towards recovery and a return to normalcy.”

Senator Gerald Malloy said, “Widespread testing of COVID-19 is critical to identify and treat infected individuals in order to prevent its spread. Accurate diagnosis of those infected is the cornerstone of our ability to make the best healthcare decisions for the individual and for Darlington County. Additionally, it helps frontline healthcare workers to be able to plan, prepare, and respond more effectively. We are going to be aggressive in Darlington County to protect our citizens and return our County to its role of being an economic leader in the P*e Dee area.”

Testing is open to anyone that is interested in receiving it, symptomatic or not. Drive-through testing is recommended, but walk-up testing will also be available. Vehicular traffic should enter the complex from Russell Road. Hartsville Police Department will direct traffic through the complex and to the tents for testing. Pedestrian traffic should enter from Washington Street to the tent that will be servicing the individuals that walk up to the site. Prescreening is not required, and the cost is free to patients. Patients will be contacted within seventy-two hours with the results of their test.

The City of Hartsville appreciates the dedication of our local delegation including Speaker Lucas, Senator Malloy, and Representative Williams to bring this testing to Hartsville.

Governor Also Lifts Boating Restrictions Statewide, Effective Immediately

COLUMBIA, S.C. –Governor Henry McMaster today announced that restaurants throughout South Carolina will be allowed to reopen for limited dine-in services beginning on Monday, May 11.

Additionally, Governor McMaster announced that he has lifted all boating restrictions, as defined by Executive Order 2020-25, effective immediately. All laws and regulations concerning the safe operation of boats in South Carolina will now return to normal.

Henry McMaster. “This virus still presents a serious threat to South Carolinians, but I have faith in the people of our state and their ability to act responsibly and in the best interest of the communities they live in.”

The governor’s announcement follows two weeks of meetings of accelerateSC – a group created by the governor to develop a coordinated economic revitalization plan which includes healthcare professionals, representatives from large and small businesses, local government officials, and education professionals.

The announcement also comes after the governor was joined by the state’s public health officials to announce a new statewide testing plan, which will dramatically increase the number of South Carolinians tested.

Based on advice and recommendations from the “Response” component of accelerateSC, which includes input from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control and the South Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association (SCRLA), Governor McMaster has established guidelines for restaurants to follow if and when they choose to open for dine-in services.

Where are your signs in Bennettsville , S.C.????
Thanks for the lights at Byerly park basketball court. William has enjoyed playing night basketball 🏀 😊.
Senator Malloy, the incidence of childhood leukemia is increasing by 1% every year. Wireless radiation is one of the suspected contributing factors to the toxic load on our children. Their bodies are small, cells are reproducing rapidly, and they absorb more radiation than adults. There are too many unknowns in 5G technology to place it in close proximity to our children. Vote NO on H4262. This is a risk we must not take.
VOTE NO TO H. 4262. WE DO NOT NEED MICROWAVE ANTENNAS MERE FEET FROM OUR HOMES! PLEASE THINK VERY HARD ABOUT THIS. South Carolina Coalition for Wireless Safety Standards
In regards to SC Bill H. 4262 & 5G, you have been informed of the the environmental & health threats, especially to children and pregnant women. Our bee population is dwindling. We cannot afford to risk further losses due to this exposure. You've been provided ample scientific evidence by @SCCWSS, of which I am a member. The industry experts brought in to testify have been exposed as frauds and unqualified; paid to lie. We are the taxpayers and constituents. We do not consent!
The second year of the legislative session started this past week with a busy agenda. I was proud to introduce S.1018, the South Carolina Juvenile Justice Reform Act of 2020. S.1018 is an important and comprehensive bill from months of work from the Select Committee on Raise the Age. Committee members are Senators Shane Martin, co-chair of the committee, Hutto, Davis, Gregory, Shealy, and Talley. This bill is a comprehensive act that reforms juvenile justice across the state by ensuring that the best interests of children are the priority. The bill seeks to promote the best interest of children through family based and community centered solutions while limiting the removal of children from home, school, and the community. Structured decision making tools will be developed and utilized throughout the juvenile process. DJJ will have more detailed reporting requirements. A Children’s Bill of Rights is established to help ensure that children’s interests are protected while in state custody. In order to promote family based and community solutions, this bill requires that each Solicitor’s Office creates a civil citation program and at least one pre-detention intervention program to divert children from the juvenile justice system. A Juvenile Justice Improvement Fund is established to promote and build upon the successes of these community based diversion and intervention programs and re-invest the cost savings that are a natural consequence of reducing the number of child “behind the fence”. In order to limit the removal of children from their community and the punitive nature of juvenile justice, this bill only authorizes the pre-trail detention of children in limited circumstances, reforms the requirements for the juvenile s*x offender registry, limits probation, limits when children can be committed to DJJ custody, and reforms the expungement process. In addition, this bill seeks to prevent the unlawful incarceration of children with serious mental illness and disabilities. Lastly, this bill seeks to minimize disruptions to the child’s education and other collateral consequences from DJJ involvement by limiting when a child can be enrolled in an alternative school and by providing services for when a child returns to school from DJJ custody. It is an honor to serve as your state Senator.
Please do not sell Santee Cooper. It should not even be on option. The state nor the tax payer are responsible for the $7.2billion debt, Santee Cooper will absorb the debt through rate increases. The proposed rates increases will STILL BE LOWER than that of Duke and Dominion, again even after the 7% increase. The state received $17million last year alone from Santee Cooper, and roughly $200million over the last 5 years. An investor owned utility (IOU) wouldn’t willingly give a penny back to the state. An IOU would run Jefferies Hydro wide open until the lakes are stump fields. Do not do this to our communities. The IOU that is most interested in buying Santee Cooper is roughly $81billion in debt. What good sense does that make? Depending on negotiations, an IOU would still likely pump up the rates for our electric co-ops, and who do their rate payers think will have to eat that? Because it won’t be central and it won’t be the co-ops themselves. Do not just push this on through to get it off of your plates!!! Get all of the information. I know everyone is tired of hearing about it but this is a landmark decision that will affect the state or South Carolina forever. The proposal to sell Santee Cooper is based on a “let’s do it and see what happens.” mentality. Well South Carolina and our communities are not interested in “winging it”! If it wasn’t for Santee Coopers low rates, the port of Charleston would be long sold. Nucor only came to South Carolina because of Santee Cooper. What about Google? What about Volvo? If Santee Cooper sells out and you think that those companies are going to stay and pay the IOU rates, you need to do some research. Because they will likely want to start doing less and less business in our state. Santee Cooper works very hard to maintain some of the lowest rates in the southeast in order to support economic growth. Santee Cooper genuinely cares about the quality of life here in South Carolina.
Senator Malloy— what is the best way to oppose the passage of the ”personhood” bill? Should we be calling and writing McMaster?
I am reaching out to you regarding a public health survey that was sent to you last month. Eat Smart Move More South Carolina (ESMMSC), a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization that is working across South Carolina to make the healthy choice the easy choice, is conducting this survey. We are conducting the study to examine South Carolina (SC) decision makers’ perceptions of the relative importance of different public health issues. I am hoping that you participate in the study because you are a SC decision maker. ESMMSC and partners will be using the information to develop district-specific educational materials to aid in your decision making as it relates to your public health interests.
The faculty and staff from AMI Kids Sandhills would like to wish Senator Malloy a Happy Birthday!!!!!
