Governor McMaster announced at a press conference Friday that he has issued another new executive order.

This new order requires all those coming into the state from coronavirus hotspots, such as New York and New Jersey, must self-quarantine for two weeks upon entering the state.

Failure to follow this new order can result in up to 30 days in jail or a fine of up to $1 thousand.

McMaster said that he is trying to take the “best and most aggressive path we can take.”

This comes after four more deaths have been reported in South Carolina from the coronavirus, bringing the state’s total to thirteen.

Among these new deaths is one reported in Greenville, the first death from the coronavirus in the county.

The Governor also made a tweet earlier this week similarly asking those coming into the state for an extended period to self-quarantine.
