NUDGED UP SLIGHTLY TO 10.9%. CAROL: A NEW EXECUTIVE ORDER IN SOUTH CAROLINA MANDATES FACE MASKS IN RESTAURANTS AND REOPENS FACILITIES LIKE STADIUMS, THEATERS AND MORE. RENEE WUNDERLICH IS LIVE OUTSIDE LEGACY EARLY COLLEGE FIE TONIGHT. RENE GOOD EVENING. SPEAKING WITH BUSINESS OWNERS, RESTAURANT TOURS, AND OTHER AFFECTED BY THE GOVERNOR’S LATEST EXECUTIVE ORDER, I HEA TWO THINGS. THE FIRST — EVERYONE IS CONCERNED ABOUT SAFETY. THEY WANT EVERYONE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE, AND THEY WANT TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE. THE OTHER THING I HEARD WERE A VARIETY OF EMOTIONS. SOME ARE HOPEFUL, BUT OTHERS ARE A LITTLE FRUSTRATED.

WE FEEL WE CAN SAFELY ACCOMMODATE 1000 OR 2000 FANS AND CONTINUE TO COMPLY WITH ALL CDC RECOMMENDATIONS. WE ARE EXCITED TO HAVE FANS BACK OUT HERE, HOPEFULLY IN A COUPL OF WEEKS. RENEE: ALSO EARLIER TODAY, THE GREENVILLE CHAMBER PUT OUT A NEWS RELEASE CALLING ON THE COUNTY AND OTHER LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND MUNICIPALITIES TO MAK STRICTER FACE MASK OR FACE COVERING ORDINANCES. WE SHOULD REMIND YOU THAT THE GOVERNOR HAS ALSO CALLED FOR THE SAME THING AND GOVERNMEN — GOVERNOR HENRY MCMASTER HAS BEEN ASKED MULTIPLE TIMES IF HE WOULD ENACT A STATEWIDE FACE MASK OR STATE COVERING POLICIES.
