HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – For those looking to hit the water to take a break from being cooped up in the house, there are tips to follow to ensure it’s done safely and in compliance with social distancing guidelines.

On Monday, Midway Fire Rescue shared advice on how to maintain proper social distancing while boating.
