NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — North Myrtle Beach council voted unanimously Monday night to extend its mask ordinance until further notice.
The ordinance was previously extended until Oct. 31 but now becomes a regular ordinance and will remain in effect until the city’s COVID-19 emergency declaration ends.
Many members of the public showed up to show their disapproval of the vote.
The fine for not following the ordinance is $25 for customers and $100 for businesses. If someone says they can’t wear a mask due to religious, age or health concerns, there will be no other questioning, according to officials.
