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.
