On Thursday, June 25, the Charleston City Council approved an emergency
ordinance requiring face coverings in public areas throughout the city of Charleston to reduce risk of exposure to COVID-19, effective July 1, 2020.

The ordinance is a fine-only offense and will be enforced primarily via educational efforts by civilian officers with the city’s Livability Department. It will remain in effect for a period of 60 days, unless otherwise terminated.

Also during tonight’s meeting, City Council voted to extend the COVID-19 state of emergency currently in effect in the city of Charleston until July 15, 2020.
