Governor advises New Year's Eve party goers

The governor is shaking his head.

He knows some of us are going to do something stupid on New Year's Eve.

And we will probably suffer the consequences.

Gov. Henry McMaster tweeted a cautionary note about letting our guard down on New Year's Eve.

He reminded us that attending indoor and outdoor events may be dangerous.

“South Carolina’s businesses, restaurants, manufacturers and public facilities have remained open for safe and secure operations due to the reasonable and measured actions that have been taken," he tweeted.

"South Carolinians know what to do to limit the virus’ spread, but there are indications that folks may be letting their guard down as it relates to large gatherings.

"As a reminder with New Year’s Eve approaching, attendance at indoor or outdoor events may not exceed 250 people or 50% of the certificate of occupancy issued by the fire marshal – unless reviewed and approved in advance by the Department of Commerce. 

"This process has served our state well.”
