McMaster creates accelerateSC, opens public beach access, some businesses

COLUMBIA – Recognizing the impact of COVID-19 to South Carolina’s economy, Gov. Henry McMaster announced Monday, the creation of accelerateSC, a coordinated economic revitalization plan involving small and large business leaders, healthcare professionals, local government officials, and education professionals.
The plan consists of five components of analysis and effort: Response, Protection, Governance, Resources, and Information. 
He also issued an executive order 2020-28, which removes restrictions on public access points to the state’s beaches, public piers, docks, and wharfs, while delegating to local officials the authority to restrict access, as they see fit.
Piers at 13 state lakes operated by DNR will also remain closed as McMaster loosens restrictions on public access to beaches and waterways. Piers at Lake Paul Wallace will remain closed.
