MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (April 28, 2020) – The Town of Mount Pleasant has launched the #HelpBizStayShopTheSafeWay campaign to facilitate the phased reopening of businesses. As retail businesses begin to plan their reopening, following Governor McMaster’s executive order Monday, the Town would like to provide the following guidelines in order to protect employees and customers:
To ensure customer confidence, the Town is encouraging businesses that are following these guidelines to hang a print-out checklist showing compliance with these CDC provided guidelines.
Under the governor’s order, retail stores must adhere to strict social-distancing requirements, operating at 20% occupancy or five customers per 1,000 square feet, whichever is less. In addition, businesses must not knowingly allow customers to congregate within six feet of one another, excluding families, and must follow relevant CDC and DHEC guidelines.
All other executive orders, including the Governor’s “Home or Work” order, remain in effect. Residents should maintain social distancing practices and avoid large groups of people.
