South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R) issued a “home or work” order Monday after increasing pressure from public health officials over the coronavirus pandemic, Your Content has learned.

He said he was issuing the “mandatory order” because too many people are “on the roads,” “on the waters” or “in the stores” — not complying with social distancing recommendations.

“We’ve asked. We’ve urged. We’ve suggested,” McMaster said at the briefing. “But the last week or so has shown that it’s not enough. The rate of infection is on the rise, and the rate of noncompliance is on the rise.”
