The City of Charleston voted unanimously on Thursday evening to enact a face mask ordinance.
In the ordinance, people must wear a face mask when entering any restaurant, retail store or any other building open to the public. Employees must also wear the face masks at all times.
People don’t have to wear a face mask if they have underlying health conditions, while driving in their cars, when participating in outdoor activities and while actively drinking or eating.
It will take effect on Friday at noon.
