As many of us South Carolinians know, Governor McMaster mandated a statewide ban on alcohol sales at bars and restaurants past 11:00 PM this summer beginning July 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This curfew-style initiative also included a restriction on amplified music, which was to be cut off by 9:00 PM. As of Tuesday, that rule has been adjusted to align with Gov. McMaster's 11:00 PM alcohol sales ban. Restaurants and bars in the City of Charleston and Isle of Palms can now play amplified music until 11:00 PM.
Starting September 25, the City of Charleston will ease its limitations on 10-person group gatherings and rely on Gov. McMaster's public gatherings requirements.
