South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced an executive order suspending all non-essential businesses in the state.
Those businesses will need to close by Wednesday and runs for 15 days by state statute. It could be amended later, the governor said.
McMaster's executive order focuses on three key types of businesses: entertainment venues, recreational and athletic facilities, and close-contact service providers. It does not apply to essential businesses, such as grocery stores or gas stations.
Drive-in, takeout and delivery service from restaurants will still be allowed.
