City of Florence extends mask ordinance until March 12

FLORENCE, S.C. (WMBF) - The City of Florence will extend its mask ordinance for at least the next two months.

The city announced through its Facebook page Tuesday that city council approved an extension of the ordinance through March 12 at its meeting on Monday.

The ordinance requires people to wear masks when entering an “establishment open to the public.” Residents must also wear masks when in food service establishments, such as restaurants.

Anyone who doesn’t comply with the ordinance could face a $25 fine, while businesses not following the mandate could face a $100 fine.

The city’s Facebook video continues to encourage residents to wear masks and stay six feet apart to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
