COLUMBIA, SC (WBTW) – A shelter in place order for South Carolina residents is not being considered at this point, according to Governor Henry McMaster.

McMaster tweeted Saturday, “At this time, ordering South Carolinians to shelter in place is not under consideration. If we all work together, act responsibly, and take necessary precautions, lives can be saved now.”

Four states have issued orders restricting movement of residents in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Current restrictions include the three biggest cities in the United States — New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. The orders affect more than 70 million people.
