It begins at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday and runs through April 13, he said. Haynie said it will follow the CDC guidelines for which businesses are classified as “essential.” It also puts a temporary stop to short-term rentals.
It also extends Mount Pleasant’s State of Emergency declaration through April 15, he said.
“This is a hardship unlike any of us have experienced in our lifetime,” Haynie said. “This storm has hit. This is not like a hurricane that we are waiting to hit our shore and see where it might come from, and then assess the damage afterwards. This storm is already here.”
