NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – North Myrtle Beach leaders will receive a legal briefing on a potential face mask ordinance during a special city council meeting Monday, according to officials.

It’s important to note that no votes will happen during the executive session.

The issue of mask mandates has been a hot topic as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the state, and in Horry County.

Greenville, Columbia, Charleston and Clemson have all passed ordinances that require people to wear a mask in certain businesses and areas. The South Carolina attorney general also came out and said that cities can legally pass those kinds of ordinances.

Myrtle Beach City Council is expected to discuss a possible ordinance during a planning meeting on Thursday, July 3.
