South Carolina to Reopen Some Businesses Immediately, Georgia Plans the Same for Later in the Week
Two southern states are beginning the process of reopening their economy as soon as today, while the country continues to battle the coronavirus.
In South Carolina, Gov. Henry McMaster announced at a Monday press conference that certain businesses in the state would be allowed to reopen, cancelling the restrictions he made two weeks ago in an attempt to fight the spread of the coronavirus. He said beaches may open, depending on guidance from local jurisdictions.
Clothing stores, furniture stores, clothing good stores and florist shops are among the places that the governor said would allowed to be open as of 5:00 p.m. today. He tasked those businesses with maintaining social distancing measures within the stores.
