Gov. Henry McMaster’s order limiting people to travel only to work, family or essential businesses like grocery stores has been lifted as of Monday.

Restaurants will be allowed to serve people at outdoor tables as long as strict distancing rules are followed. Outdoor dining can resume with strict limits of eight people to a table.

New Dining Guidelines

Existing approved outdoor seating areas:

  • Tables are to be spaced a minimum of 8 feet from each other (measured from all edges of the table);
  • Limit table groups to 8 individuals;
  • Eliminate gatherings in the building when entering or exiting outdoor seating area;
  • Maintain strict social/physical distancing guidelines;
  • Tables, chairs, and seats should be sanitized after every customer

If open areas and/or temporary tents are utilized by existing, permitted restaurants, all sides of the tent must be open and the following conditions are required:

  • Tables are to be spaced a minimum of 8 feet from each other (measured from all edges of the table);
  • Table groups are to be limited to 8 individuals;
  • State approved fire extinguisher within 75 feet of tent area;
  • Minimum of 7-foot-6 inch head room (ceiling height)

This is in addition to existing take out, curbside and delivery services.
