South Carolina Issues 'Home or Work Order'

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster Monday issued a "home or work order," a proclamation instituting restrictions similar to the 'stay at home' order seen in other states such as North Carolina.

McMaster's order takes effect at 5 p.m. Tuesday and orders residents to stay home, unless traveling to work, essential shopping (such as groceries), or essential errands (such as seeking medical attention.)

"People should stay at home," McMaster said. 

McMaster said he did that because people are not complying enough with previous requests. "We've asked, we've urged, we've suggested, but the last week or so has shown it is not enough."
