South Carolina Gov. McMaster said he wants to “slingshot back around the competition” to get back to business so he's allowing some stores to reopen today.
Retail, department and sporting goods stores, as well as flea markets, will be allowed to open at 5 p.m. today at 20% capacity, or five people per 1,000 square feet.
Speaking at a news conference, he said he’d like to “stomp on the gas” and accelerate as fast and as safely as they can. McMaster announced a group called “Accelerate SC” with 29 participants across various industries.
Beaches will be reopened beginning at noon Tuesday.
